This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Through around 9 or 10 AM, areas of fog will be possible in 
various parts of the outlook area. While widespread dense fog is 
not anticipated, limited areas may see visibility reduced to one-
half mile or less. 

This evening into tonight, at least small thunderstorm chances
will gradually spread into most of the outlook area, with chances
first affecting areas north and west of the Tri Cities before 
expanding southeast with time. While a strong storm appears
possible almost anywhere, Nebraska locations mainly northwest of 
a line from Beaver City, to Kearney, to Wolbach stand a small
chance of severe storms, and are included in a Marginal Risk. The
main threats with any possible severe storms would be wind gusts 
to around 60 MPH, and hail up to around quarter size. 

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Thunderstorm chances continue Thursday into Thursday night across
most of the outlook area, with the overall-highest chances
favoring southern and eastern counties. Much of the area is
currently included in a Marginal Risk of severe storms during the
afternoon and evening, with a somewhat more-favored Slight Risk 
area focused mainly southeast of a line from Fairmont to Red Cloud
Nebraska, to Natoma Kansas.

Additional, intermittent chances for thunderstorms exist for
various portions of the outlook area between Saturday afternoon
and Tuesday. 


Spotter activation may be needed this evening, mainly northwest of
a line from Beaver City, to Kearney, to Wolbach.
