Tornado and Damaging Wind Risk Late Today and Tonight

The brown area has a significant risk of tornadoes very late this afternoon and early evening. It includes Omaha, St. Joseph and Manhattan. 

The more widespread threat is damaging thunderstorm winds. 
  • The hatched area is where wind gusts of 75 mph or stronger are forecasted to occur. In this area, power failures and toppled trees are likely if the winds reach forecast values. 
  • Non-hatched areas are where winds of 60-75 mph are forecasted. 
  • The red area has an enhanced risk of those winds occurring. 
  • The yellow area has a significant risk of those winds. 
I will try to update again late this afternoon.
