ISOLATED TO SCATTERED NON-SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE
THROUGH TONIGHT...MAINLY EARLY THIS MORNING IN NORTHEAST NEBRASKA
AND THEN LATER THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT OVER MOST OF THE AREA.
A WEAK FRONT IN NORTHEAST NEBRASKA WILL LIFT NORTH OR DISSIPATE

70 COULD PUSH THE FIRE DANGER INDEX INTO THE VERY HIGH CATEGORY
OVER MUCH OF THE AREA.

A STRONG UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM WILL LIKELY MOVE ACROSS THE NORTHERN
PLAINS WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. THIS SYSTEM COULD BRING
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE AREA AS EARLY AS TUESDAY NIGHT BUT ESPECIALLY
BY LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A FEW STRONG OR SEVERE
STORMS ARE EXPECTED...AND LATER OUTLOOKS WILL PROVIDE BETTER
DETAILS ON TIMING AND MAIN THREATS. THERE REMAINS A SMALL CHANCE
THAT STRONG STORMS COULD LINGER OR REDEVELOP OVER EASTERN PARTS
OF THE AREA INTO THURSDAY.
