Damaging storms forecast for Nebraska, Iowa

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The National Weather Service says damaging storms are expected to develop later Tuesday in Nebraska and Iowa.

The National Weather Service in Omaha says there's a moderate risk today for severe weather in an area that includes Omaha and Lincoln.

The weather service says in its hazardous weather outlook that storms are likely to erupt along and north of Interstate 80 and quickly move east. The storms could spawn tornadoes, produce damaging hail and straight-line winds and drop torrents of rain.

A flash flood watch has been issued for the southern half of Iowa.
