The Nation Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect Wednesday (September 11, 2019) until 10:00 PM. The Watch includes the Nebraska Panhandle, parts of northeastern Colorado and Goshen and Laramie Counties in Wyoming. This includes the city of Cheyenne.

The NWS says that supercells capable of large, damaging hail are the main concern. However, an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
