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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Thunderstorm chances remain in the forecast across the outlook
area this afternoon through tonight. There will be the potential
for some storms to be severe, mainly between 4 PM and midnight.

The best chances for severe thunderstorms will be south of
Highway 6 and into north central Kansas, with chances being more
isolated up to Interstate 80. The primary hazards for areas south
of Highway 6 would be large hail near 2 inches in diameter,
damaging wind gusts near 60 MPH and heavy rainfall. While not
likely, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, mainly across
north central Kansas. Further north toward Interstate 80, hail
near the size of quarters and heavy rain would be the primary
hazards.

Given the wet soil conditions, heavy rain accompanying any
thunderstorms may lead to flash flooding or low land flooding over
portions of the outlook area, and a Flash Flood Watch remains in
effect this evening through late Friday evening. Please refer to
the latest Flash Flood Watch message for additional information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Severe thunderstorms will again be possible Friday afternoon into
Friday evening with the greater threat of severe weather across
north central Kansas. The primary threats will be flash flooding,
large hail, and damaging winds. A Flash Flood Watch remains in
effect this evening through late Friday evening. Please refer to
the latest Flash Flood Watch message for additional information.

After a quiet weekend a chance of thunderstorms will return to the
outlook area Monday into Monday night.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely be needed after 4 PM this
afternoon, especially for areas south of Highway 6.
