Omaha, NE – Severe thunderstorms are anticipated to hit the Omaha and Valley areas this Sunday, with weather conditions likely to escalate in the late afternoon and evening.

According to the US National Weather Service, there is a significant chance of thunderstorms, ranging between 50-80%. The forecast also indicates a 5-20% likelihood of these storms becoming severe. Residents should be on high alert as the storms could bring hail up to one inch in diameter and winds reaching speeds of up to 60 mph. Additionally, brief tornadoes are possible, heightening the risk of damage and disruption.

Localized flash flooding is another concern, with heavy rain potentially causing hazardous conditions on the roads and in low-lying areas. The National Weather Service advises those with outdoor plans this weekend to stay weather aware and consider rescheduling or relocating activities indoors. It’s crucial to have multiple ways to receive weather warnings, such as weather radios, mobile alerts, and local news updates.

As the weather system approaches, residents are encouraged to secure outdoor objects, ensure their emergency kits are stocked, and stay informed about the latest weather updates. Safety precautions and preparedness are key to minimizing the impact of these severe weather conditions.
