Southeast Nebraska sees brief winter thunderstorm, Tuesday afternoon
It isn't every Valentine's Day that a thunderstorm rolls through southeast Nebraska, but such was the case on Tuesday afternoon.
BEATRICE - It isn't every Valentine's Day that a thunderstorm rolls through southeast Nebraska, but such was the case on Tuesday afternoon.
A brief storm line stretching from the Marysville area of northeastern Kansas to Omaha, and into northeast Nebraska, moved across the state around 4:15 p.m., Tuesday. Lightning, periods of torrential rain, and even hail were reported across the region.
As of 4:40 p.m. Tuesday, Beatrice had registered around .4" inches of precipitation, with reports of pea-sized hail.
This all occurring while temperatures remained in the lower 50's, but that could change quickly as several areas of the state, including southeast Nebraska, are under a winter storm watch until noon on Thursday.
