Hello everyone i hope you are having a great evening getting ready for the holiday! As promised have issued this new forecast concerning Severe Weather Potential and Heavy Rain Potential over the next few days. Current radar trends show that an expansive area of Showers and Thunderstorms are developing in Northern and Western Nebraska. Current storm motion puts them in a Eastern Southeast storm motion currently. As of right now, the storms are not severe nor am i expecting any severe weather for the rest of the night except for an isolated hailer. Despite this and their east southeast storm motion, current precipable water index tables show a healthy area of building moisture over Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa with dewpoints increasing to near 60 degrees. Current thinking is that areas north of Interstate 80 tonight have the best opportunity of seeing any showers and storm chances tonight. Once again now Severe Weather expected but an isolated hailer may be possibe. The main threat will be heavy rain so some areas may pick up a decent amount of rainfall. The region should get a brief breaking during mid day and try to clean up the atmosphere for afternoon storms though it will be pretty tough to get the atmosphere heated up if clouds linger through the day. Nevertheless, Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Storm risk from Columbus to Harlan Iowa on Southward with main threats being large hail and damaging Winds. Areas South of Lincoln to Nebraska City will stand a threat of an Isolated Tornado due to higher shear values. The main threats in this whole storm will be the heavy rainfall and with models nosing out a healthy 1-2″ of rainfall across most of the viewing area, i would expect that a good bet. So please plan on Heavy Rain and chance for Scattered Severe Storms tomorrow evening and a possibility of a early morning waker Friday Morning. Stay tuned for the 4th of July forecast coming Friday. Have a great night fellow weather watchers!
