Strong to severe storms expected this evening 5/17/2022

Don’t let the morning sunshine fool you! You’ll want to carry your umbrella around with you today because scattered showers and thunderstorms will move into the area later. These thunderstorms most likely won’t be severe for a majority of the day, but I can’t rule out the possibility for a warning or two to be thrown out this morning and afternoon. Highs will be similar to yesterday, in the upper 70s and low 80s so dress accordingly. More widespread severe activity is expected after 6 PM today with the target zone right over southeast NE. Large hail, strong wind gusts and even some tornadoes are likely. Please have several ways to receive weather updates and alerts this evening!

Storms will push out of the area around 3-4 AM Wednesday leaving us with dry conditions tomorrow. Temperatures warm to the upper 80s on Thursday before we quickly cool into the weekend with highs in the 60s. Another round of strong to severe storms is also likely Thursday evening.
