Overview   ***Preliminary***

During the late afternoon and evening of June 11, 2018, thunderstorms developed near the surface low pressure system over Dodge county and ahead of a cold front that moved through in eastern Nebraska and a warm front that trailed southeast into western Iowa.  In-between these fronts, there appeared to be a pre-frontal boundary that was northeast of Lincoln and west of Plattsmouth.  Six confirmed tornadoes, large hail to baseball size and damaging winds accompanied the storms.
