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


Scattered severe thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and
evening along a surface trough that will intensify across the
eastern Panhandle, western Sandhills and northwest Nebraska. Any
storms that form are capable of producing damaging hail, very
strong winds, and heavy rainfall. The area of greatest concern
will generally be along and north of a line from Ogallala to
Thedford to Naper. While the greatest threats from these storms
are the strong winds and large hail, an isolated tornado cannot be
ruled out. The greatest tornado risk is across northern Nebraska
from Sheridan County east through central Cherry County. Stay
tuned to later forecasts for more details regarding this threat.

As a surface low intensifies on the high plains, southerly winds
will increase across west central Nebraska. Wind gusts this
afternoon will be in excess of 40 mph.

The warm, dry and windy conditions expected today will lead to a
increased threat of large range fire spread in areas that have not
seen much precipitation this spring.


Severe thunderstorms will be possible once again Sunday and Monday
as the atmosphere remains unstable and residual boundaries remain.
Large hail and damaging wind would be expected with any storm
that develops. The greatest risk of storms Sunday will be across
northern Nebraska and south into the Sandhills. On Monday, the
focus of severe weather moves east with a cold front. The greatest
chances will lie along and east of a Hayes Center to Ainsworth to
Butte line.
