Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for southeast Nebraska
After a first round of severe weather Wednesday night impacted far southeast Nebraska and northeastern Kansas, a second round of storms could be on its way overnight.
The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch that includes the entirety of the Ol' Red 99.5 and KWBE listening areas. It will expire at 6 a.m. for areas in the watch in Kansas and at 7 a.m. for counties in Nebraska.
According to the National Weather Service, this round of storms could bring scattered hail up to ping-pong ball size along with wind gusts up to 70 miles-per-hour. Tornadoes cannot totally be ruled out either.
Shortly after midnight, storms were beginning to develop on the Kansas side of the Nebraska-Kansas border south of Hastings and Kearney. Those storms are forecast to move northeast and impact Nebraska in the early morning hours Thursday.
A Tornado Watch that was in effect for Wednesday evening and night expired at 11 p.m.
