Severe Weather Strikes For the Second Day in a Row

Severe thunderstorms produced large hail the size of golf balls and damaging winds over 60 mph across parts of western and north central Nebraska Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. A stationary frontal boundary was responsible for the storms, which first developed in the eastern Nebraska panhandle during the afternoon. One intense, long-lived storm known as a supercell moved southeast along the front and produced several hail reports along its path, as well as a peak wind gust of 67 mph at the North Platte airport at 7:00 p.m. CDT.  The initial round of storms moved out of the area by sunset, but a disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere resulted in additional storms along the front during the night. One of the most intense storms was a supercell that produced baseball size hail 6 miles north of Ellsworth at 1045 p.m. MDT, and golf ball size hail 10 miles southeast of Ashby in rural Grant County at 11:31 p.m. MDT. 

The storms also produced heavy rain with many locations reporting over an inch of rainfall. The highest reported total of 2.95 inches came from 14 miles north of Atkinson in Holt County.
