This evening and overnight, an upper low will emerge onto the Front Range of Colorado, with an associated surface low lifting from northeast Colorado into the panhandle and far southwest Nebraska early evening. As this occurs, a northwest to southeast oriented dryline will be in place across the southeast panhandle and far southwest Nebraska, while a warm front extends near Highways 2 and 91. The 12Z CAMS and deterministic models differ on the location of initiation. Critical fire weather conditions continue this evening behind the dryline.

Southeasterly flow will cross the warm front bringing moderate moisture advection into much of the Sandhills and north central Nebraska, with dewpoints in the 50s. SBCAPES will easily range from 2000-25000 J/KG. Deep layer wind profiles look ample to support organized updrafts, with deep meridional flow aloft leading to elongated hodographs with height. Low-level flow remains backed and will lead to good curvature in the lowest few kilometers of the hodograph as the low-level jet strengthens near/after sunset). The environment looks to be supportive for initial discrete supercell development early evening, with storms trending to cluster over north central Nebraska during the evening. An enhanced risk for severe storms mainly east of a Merriman through Callaway line. Large to very large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are possible.

After dark, more widespread convective development is expected north and east of a surface low oriented across south central into north central Nebraska later tonight. Interacting updrafts may limit the hail threat some after midnight, along with any damaging wind threat as the boundary layer cools and storms may become elevated across north central Nebraska.

On Tuesday, the upper low is forecast to move from south central Nebraska into northeast Nebraska by late afternoon. This will bring likely to categorical POPs through the day for showers and thunderstorms. Wraparound rainfall behind the low will bring the higher rainfall amounts from a half inch to over an inch to areas mainly along a corridor from Valentine through Broken Bow.
Rainfall amounts look considerably less across southwest Nebraska.

As the deep surface low begins to slowly push off to the east late Tuesday morning, flow will quickly strengthen from the northwest behind the surface cold front. Strong flow aloft will mix to the surface from increasing cold advection. Winds gusting in excess of 55 miles per hour Tuesday late morning through the afternoon are possible mainly near and west of Highway 83, and areas to the east late Tuesday afternoon and evening. The current High Winds watch for southwestern counties remains in effect, where gusts to 60 mph area possible.

The system finally exits the area Tuesday night, with precip ending from west to east.

Wednesday looks dry until later afternoon across the west, as another trough moves into the Northern Plains. This looks to bring likely chances for rain showers behind a cold front pushing through the area Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Some snow could mix into the rain across the northwest Sandhills, as the column cools aloft. The upper flow remain fairly zonal Thursday through Saturday, becoming northwesterly Sunday into Monday. lows chances for showers, and possibly some snow showers Friday night into Saturday morning across the northwest Sandhills. Highs to only reach the mid 40s to low 50s Thursday/Friday, 40s Saturday, warming to the 50s Sunday and the 60s Monday.

Issued at 610 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Numerous thunderstorms will be possible this evening into the overnight hours, potentially impacting both KLBF and KVTN.
Gusty, erratic winds and large hail are possible. Will rely heavily on radar and satellite trends for future amendments.

MVFR/IFR conditions develop late across the Pine Ridge, expanding southeastward across northern Nebraska, the Sandhills, and central Nebraska through the day on Tuesday. Widespread rain and some embedded thunderstorms will continue through the day on Tuesday. Conditions will improve from west-to-east Tuesday evening as the precipitation moves east. Strong, gusty northwest winds develop Tuesday behind a departing low pressure system with gusts of 40 to 50kts expected, continuing into Tuesday evening.

Red Flag Warning until 10 PM MDT this evening for NEZ204-210.
High Wind Watch from Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening for NEZ022-023-035-056>058-069.
