Severe Thunderstorm Watch Until 11pm
The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch until 11pm for parts of central Nebraska. It includes Wichita, Hutchinson, Salina, Omaha, Lincoln and Grand Island. Large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds are possible in these areas. There are a number of college football games in progress and pending in this region over the next few hours.
Here is an updated radar view of the thunderstorms at 3:40pm CDT. Cloud-to-ground lightning is already being detected.
If you are going to attend a football game, please do not stay in the stands if lightning or other severe weather approaches.
