Storm System Expected To Hit Eastern Part Of State
Posted: 08 June, 2013
VALLEY - A storm system that brought rain and storms to the Rapid City, South Dakota area and east to Valentine, Nebraska last night is expected to linger today, and those living in eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa are definitely not out of the woods regarding severe weather.
Becky Kern is a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Valley and she says Saturday will start out sunny and warm but then a cold front will move into the area sparking thunderstorms, hail, heavy rain and possibly tornadoes. Kern says the two weather systems should clash after 3 pm and could last until 9. She says 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible with this storm system. She says the most active area will be south of the I-80 corridor. Kern recommends Nebraskans keep close tabs on the weather situation especially if they are attending events outdoors. Kern says next week temperatures will be back in the 80′s but there is still a possibility of thunderstorms.
