After enjoying about a little more than a week of lovely spring weather, the Omaha-metro area braced for its first bout of severe weather, projected to roll into the area late Tuesday afternoon. The weather pattern makes a multi-day severe weather event likely across the middle of the country. Storms on Wednesday could be particularly strong, with a few tornadoes possible - some of which could be strong. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are all in play with any storms that develop. Large hail and tornadoes will be the initial threat with a damaging wind and hail threat into the overnight period. While some details remain uncertain, it appears increasing likely that a significant tornado threat will exist in this region by midweek.

Meanwhile, east of the severe storms, very warm air is surging into the Midwest and Northeast.
