DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Officials say storms sweeping across eastern Nebraska and Iowa this weekend pose the threat of isolated tornadoes and hail while strong wind gusts and heavy snow are expected further west.

Meteorologist Jim Lee with the National Weather Service in Des Moines says the entirety of Iowa is slightly at risk for severe weather Sunday, though it’s unlikely the storms will hammer the whole state. He says it remains unclear what regions could be hit the hardest.

Forecasters in central Nebraska say the region faces potentially damaging winds, and meteorologists overseeing the Nebraska Panhandle predict between 3 inches and 5 inches of snow by Sunday evening.

Meteorologist Shawn Rossi in Hastings says the upcoming system isn’t expected to produce widespread storms like those seen in southeast Nebraska earlier this week.
