There were rumbles of thunder over parts of Nebraska this morning. David Eastlack is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Valley and says severe storms are brewing in the Midwest but for the most part we will be spared. Those traveling south into Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma should pay close attention to weather updates.
Eastlack says, “I can’t discount maybe a few storms producing hail in southeast Nebraska but it is not going to be a widespread event like it will be down south from Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. All of this will be developing along a frontal boundary and there is plenty of moisture and instability to produce significant storms.”
Eastlack says even though severe weather can occur at any time, Nebraska’s tends to peak in May and June. He says in the near term we are not looking at anything severe.
