A cold front sweeping across Nebraska is bringing much-needed relief for some areas – but not before packing a severe punch Tuesday night.

Numerous strong-to-severe storms will be possible across southeastern Nebraska Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Large hail, damaging wind, frequent lightning and a few tornadoes are all possible. Heavy rain also threatens the southeastern part of the state, as rain and storms will continue overnight into Wednesday morning. Up to two inches of rain is likely, but locally upwards of 3-4″ is possible.

As the front swings through bringing heavy rain and severe storms, strong north winds will blast in behind the front. A High Wind Warning will be in effect through Wednesday morning as gusts up to 65 mph will be possible. Secure any loose items you have outside, especially garbage cans. The windy conditions will stick around throughout Wednesday before quieter weather returns Thursday.
