OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ The National Weather Service says damaging storms are expected to develop later Tuesday in Nebraska and Iowa.
The weather service says in its hazardous weather outlook that storms are likely to erupt along and north of Interstate 80 and quickly move east. The storms could spawn tornadoes, produce damaging hail and straight-line winds and drop torrents of rain.

Channel 8 morning meteorologist Sean McMullen says strong to severe storms will develop west of the Lincoln metro tracking east throughout the afternoon and evening. These storms will be capable of producing very large hail, strong straight-line winds, flash flooding and even long-tracked, cyclic tornadoes. Remain weather aware today and keep informed on the latest developments. Also know where to go to take shelter in the case of a weather emergency. Otherwise highs will reach into the upper 80's today with dewpoints making it to nearly 70° along with southeast winds 15-25 mph. Storms will last into the late evening hours, possibly overnight.
