The forecast for severe weather becomes complicated into the afternoon and evening Friday night. Depending greatly on the lingering morning precipitation and cloud cover severe weather is possible as a warm front may cross into Southern Nebraska. This could include damaging winds, large hail, and a few isolated tornadoes. The more likely severe weather event may occur into Friday night as a cold front moves into the area from west to east. Storms may form along and ahead of the front bringing with them large hail and damaging winds.
