The twister was reported near the towns of Cortland and Adams, but there are no reports of any serious damage.
Brian Miller, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, says the biggest hail fell between 6 and 8:30 p-m.
“There were a couple of different rounds of large hail, up to around two inches in diameter,” Miller says, “and then rain amounts, some places had over three inches in some spots.
Miller says wide sections of Nebraska may see more severe weather this week.
“There are thunderstorm chances just about every day and then after the afternoon and evening activity today, it looks like our next chance of organized storms would be Wednesday,” he says.
Last night, two-inch diameter hail fell north of Adams, east of Firth and at Sterling. Golf ball-sized hail was reported west of Auburn, in Hickman and southwest of Douglas and east of Sterling. Golf ball-sized hail also fell in Lincoln.
