The greatest risk area will be across the central and northern Plains, where damaging winds are expected to be widespread, as well the risk of tornadoes and large hail. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted parts of Nebraska under a 'moderate' risk. This is the 2nd to highest level of alert from the SPC.
Storms will tend to fire up by early afternoon across the southeast U.S. and gradually press east through the evening. In the Central and Northern Plains, storms will develop by mid afternoon, and will press on through the late night and overnight time frame. Storms could be severe overnight for major cities like Sioux Falls, Sioux City, and Omaha, NE .
