The agency says some of the storms could feature 60 mph downburst winds, heavy rain, and golfball-size hail. The agency posted this statement on its website:

''Greetings! Here's our forecast for southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle for your Thursday and Thursday evening. Look for storms to begin developing over the mountains shortly after noon time today, that will drift east into the southeast Wyoming plains through the afternoon. Some of these storms could become severe, especially across Laramie County in southeast Wyoming near Cheyenne, as well as Kimball County in the Panhandle. Timing of these severe storms looks to be from 1PM near Cheyenne, Wyoming to 6PM out by Kimball and Scottsbluff. Storms end in the Panhandle around sunset this evening.
