A significant severe weather outbreak is expected late this afternoon and evening across southeastern Wyoming and western Nebraska.
The National Weather Service in Cheyenne said that the threat of severe weather is high, and there is an enhanced threat of tornadoes, especially in southeast Wyoming, later today.
Current forecasts have storms developing around 2 p.m. in the mountains, and spreading east through the evening. Once storms develop, they are expected to rapidly turn severe.
Tornadoes – some intense – are possible with the storms, especially in the afternoon hours. In addition, very large hail – some to the size of baseballs, flooding rainfall, and damaging winds are also possible.
The weather service said that storms should quickly end from west to east before midnight as a strong cold front blasts through the region.
