Weather official: Severe thunderstorms to hit Nebraska, Iowa

Posted April 20, 2017

Thursday will bring back the 70s and a higher chance of severe storms in the afternoon.

Motorists should anticipate delays due to sudden poor visibility, strong winds and urban flooding, especially in the Interstate 69, 70, 71, 75 and 80 corridors.

Tonight: Increasing clouds with isolated showers/storms. wind: S/N 10-20; gusty.

A cold front will drop south out of Kansas into northern Oklahoma overnight.

Storms will likely weaken as they move past the Interstate 35 corridor.

The front will briefly stall out near the Red River tomorrow night and then slowly lift as a warm front on Friday. That will be your friend in T-Town Saturday avoiding the heavy storms moving into the region. "It remains to be seen if it's going to lead to any flash flooding concerns".

Storms will track across southern Ontario through the afternoon and evening, with the greatest threat for severe impacts along and south of the warm front. The location of this boundary will be key to determining the maximum locations for severe weather Friday afternoon and evening.

It will be mostly cloudy and chilly Saturday with highs in the mid-50s.

A warming trend kicks in Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Lancaster County, effective through 6.
