Baseball-size hail fell from near Wallace to northern Hayes County around 3:30 p.m. Funnel clouds were spotted, residents said.

Hail also broke windows in Sutherland. In McCook, windshields were cracked on dozens of cars in the Wal-Mart parking lot, according to a McCook resident who did not leave their name.

The worst weather remained south of North Platte.

As the storm front swept through southern and western Nebraska, a tornado was reported near Sidney. A report from Arthur County said that plows were needed to clear six inches of quarter-sized hail that covered roads, according to KNOP television.

Wild weather is forecast throughout the night, with winds up to 50 miles an hour, large hail and heavy rains, according to the national weather service. The hardest hit areas are from Imperial to McCook.

The North Platte River in North Platte is expected to rise 4-6 inches in the next couple of days due to the rains, the weather service said. The river will increase to near 7 feet depth, about a foot over flood stage but well below the peak depth of 7.7 foot when the river crested in early June.
