This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest
Iowa...east central Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and into this
evening. Chances will be highest from about 3 pm to 9 pm in
southwest Iowa and far eastern Nebraska. The main threats are
hail, strong winds, and isolated tornadoes. The tornado risk is
highest east of a line from Tecumseh to Arlington to Harlan and
includes parts of east central and southeast Nebraska into
southwest Iowa.

These storms are expected to quickly develop and will be fast
moving.

The storms are expected to develop near a warm front and ahead of
a dryline as stronger forcing moves into the area this afternoon,
so there may be a couple of areas where storms initiate.

Prepare now to avoid being caught traveling or outside should
storms develop in your area.

There will be very high fire danger over parts of southeast
Nebraska this afternoon, and the fire danger index could briefly
rise into the extreme category.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Rain will become mixed with and change to snow later tonight and
Saturday, while northwest winds increase to 25 to 35 mph with
higher gusts to 50 mph. An inch or two of snow could accumulate,
and the strong winds could cause some blowing snow.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely be needed this afternoon and
early this evening.
