A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has scheduled burns for several parks over the winter, as weather permits.
The burns will be held between December 15th and April 30th at Smith Falls State Park, Chadron State Park, Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area and Lake Minatare State Recreation Area.
The commission says it will be burning piles of brush and tree debris. Removal of trees burned in wildfires at Chadron State Park will begin this winter and some of that material may be incinerated as well.
