Colorado with all severe hazards possible. These storms will likely
consolidate and evolve into a bowing MCS that accelerates east along
the Kansas-Nebraska border. This will yield an increasing risk for
significant severe wind gusts later this evening.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 90 statute miles
north and south of a line from 65 miles west southwest of Imperial
NE to 25 miles south southeast of Mccook NE. For a complete
depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update


REMEMBER…A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings.
