Powerful thunderstorms will rage from western Texas to Minnesota and Wisconsin on Saturday with elevated violent storm risks centered on Nebraska and portions of Colorado, Iowa and Kansas.
"Supercell thunderstorms are expected to develop across central Nebraska and north-central Kansas," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said. "Initially, these storms will be capable of producing very large hail, to the size of baseballs, and a few tornadoes."
As the storms shift eastward into eastern Nebraska and western Iowa later tonight, they will morph into a complex capable of producing widespread damaging winds and large hail.
Cities at risk for dangerous weather conditions Saturday into Saturday night include Omaha, Nebraska; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Des Moines, Iowa; and Wichita, Kansas.
