This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Nearly the entire outlook area is under a Slight Risk of severe
thunderstorms, mainly between 5 PM and Midnight. The main hazards
with any severe storms will be hail up to around golf ball size
and damaging wind gusts up to around 70 MPH, although brief heavy
rainfall of at least 1 to 2 inches is also possible in a few
spots.

Going into more detail, at least isolated severe storms are
expected to first develop late this afternoon within counties
mainly west of the Highway 281 corridor. With time, this initial
somewhat isolated activity may expand in coverage as it tracks
east-southeast across more of the outlook area, perhaps
transitioning into one or more clusters or lines of storms.
Should this occur, the threat of damaging winds may increase with
eastward and southward extent. While the development of at least a
few severe storms seems probable, there is some uncertainty
regarding whether this activity will remain fairly isolated in
nature, or in fact become rather widespread affecting many
counties.

In addition to the threat of severe storms, today is expected to
be the overall-hottest afternoon of the season-so-far for most of
the area, especially in terms of the heat index, which is
expected to peak as high as 100 to 104 degrees.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Thunderstorms are also in the forecast for Thursday afternoon
through Friday morning. Strong to severe thunderstorms are
possible Thursday afternoon and evening. Large hail and damaging
winds will be the primary threats.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed in various portions of the
outlook area late this afternoon into this evening.
