THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF WESTERN AND
NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT ACROSS MOST OF WESTERN AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA.

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO FORM ACROSS THE EASTERN
NEBRASKA PANHANDLE AND PORTIONS OF NORTHERN NEBRASKA THIS
AFTERNOON. AHEAD OF THIS AREA OF LOW PRESSURE...SOUTHERLY WINDS
WILL TRANSPORT ADDITIONAL MOISTURE INTO THE AREA. THIS
MOISTURE...COMBINED WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE TODAY WILL PRODUCE AN
UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE ACROSS THE AREA. ALTHOUGH THE AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE WILL BE UNORGANIZED INITIALLY...EVENTUALLY IT WILL SERVE
AS A FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT BY 3 PM MDT (4 PM CDT).
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED TO BE ISOLATED AT
FIRST...DEVELOPING NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 ACROSS THE SANDHILLS AND
INTO NORTHERN NEBRASKA THEN MOVING SOUTHWARD AND EXPANDING DURING THE
LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE
LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND. MOVEMENT MAY BE SLOW INITIALLY AS
WELL...SO HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE A POSSIBILITY. AS THE EVENING
PROGRESSES...ADDITIONAL THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AND
SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH SUNSET.

THOSE PLANNING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES TODAY SHOULD BE AWARE NOT ONLY
FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR LARGE HAIL...HEAVY RAIN AND DAMAGING
WINDS...BUT ALSO FOR QUICKLY DEVELOPING STORMS THAT COULD PRODUCE
FREQUENT LIGHTNING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA SUNDAY LATE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THE UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE WILL REMAIN IN
PLACE AHEAD OF THE FRONT WHICH WILL MEAN THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS WILL EXIST ONCE AGAIN SUNDAY. AS A RESULT OF THE
STRONG FRONT MOVING THROUGH...MORE WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORM
DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED SUNDAY...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY
RAIN AS WELL. THUNDERSTORMS MAY LINGER INTO EARLY MORNING
MORNING...BUT SHOULD END ACROSS THE AREA DURING THE DAY MONDAY.

THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IS POSSIBLE AGAIN BY WEDNESDAY INTO
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. CONFIDENCE ON WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER
DURING THIS TIME FRAME IS LOW HOWEVER.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED ACROSS MUCH OF WESTERN AND NORTH
CENTRAL NEBRASKA THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.
