Meteorologist Clint Aegerter at the National Weather Service office in Valley told KFOR News on Friday morning that the timing aspect of storm development will be key.
“Maybe 2, to 3 to 4pm for storms to start,” according to Aegerter. “They’ll probably start really close to Lincoln, if not directly overhead. They’ll push off to the northeast and probably be out of Lincoln by 7pm or so.”
The main threats will be damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain and the possibility of a couple of tornadoes can’t be ruled out. Stay with KFOR FM101.5/1240AM and kfornow.com for the latest weather information.
