The next round of severe weather in Nebraska could come as early as Tuesday. National Weather Service – Valley Meteorologist Barbara Mayes says the day will start out hot and humid but as the day goes on super-cells of severe weather could start to break out in the central part of the state in the early afternoon hours. More storms could break out in the later afternoon and evening hours and they could increase and become more widespread. Mayes says it then could develop into a complex that tracks east into Iowa through the evening and into the night.
Mayes says threats with this storm system includes tornadoes, hail, heavy rain and strong wind. The system will likely spread from the North Platte, Grand Island area east to the Iowa – Illinois border and north to south from the Nebraska – South Dakota line to Kansas City.
Mayes says there is still some uncertainty on how things will develop this far out and there is always a question of where the storm system will start and when. She says they will continue to monitor the situation carefully but since there is a threat for hazardous weather it is a good idea to get the word out early so people can prepare.
