The National Weather Service is tracking the chance for severe weather in western Nebraska Wednesday.
Dawes County along with portions of Sioux, Sheridan and Box Butte counties are under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms. The rest of the panhandle is under a marginal risk.
The National Weather Service office in Cheyenne says storms may develop across east-central Wyoming late Wednesday afternoon before moving into the panhandle.
Strong downburst winds and ping-pong ball sized hail are the main threats with these storms.
