It's another hot, humid and windy day in southeastern Nebraska, as highs are going top out in the lower to mid 90s.  It will feel like 97 degrees or better.

With this humid heat comes the real threat of very severe weather.

Late this afternoon, a cold front will push through helping to trigger thunderstorms that might persist into the late evening.

The best chance of severe weather will be between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. -- but it could occur anytime after 5 p.m.  

The National Weather Service says some of these storms could be severe with large hail, damaging winds, and flash flooding possible. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out. 

AccuWeather -- the official weather service of the Dorchester Times -- predicts there's a 60% chance of precipitation, with a severe thunderstorm early.  Storms may bring downpours, large hail, damaging winds, and a tornado, AccuWeather says.
