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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Strong thunderstorms are possible this morning which may produce
wind gusts near 50 mph.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible again tonight, mainly
after dark through the overnight hours. While all areas have at
least some potential for severe weather, the greatest risk resides
southwest of a Kearney, NE to Mankato, KS line. Large hail the
size of half dollars and damaging winds of 70 mph are the main
hazards. In addition, heavy rainfall in excess of one and two
inches may accompany the storms and produce localized flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Periodic rounds of thunderstorms are possible nearly every day in
the extended periods with the exception of Sunday.

On Saturday, severe thunderstorms are forecast again, primarily
for areas east of Highway 281. There is also an enhanced risk for
severe thunderstorms to the east of a line from Hebron, NE to
Beloit, KS. The primary storm hazards will be large hail and
damaging winds, however an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Heavy rainfall remains possible through Saturday night which may
lead to areas of lowland flooding.

Severe weather chances may return at times with thunderstorms
next week and details of this will be refined with time.


Spotter activation may be needed intermittently tonight and
