The storm system that is bringing heavy snow to the High Plains and Upper Midwest today will also bring a chance for strong to severe storms of parts of Nebraska and Kansas later this afternoon and evening.
The Storm Prediction Center has a Slight Risk of severe weather over these areas for later today and early Saturday morning.
The main risk that we are most concerned about is hail up to 1" in diameter.
Here is the latest forecast for the low pressure system moving through the Plains. Showers and storms should fire up just north of the low later this evening.
