The hail was a product of supercells that formed during the afternoon hours, which quickly merged into a very well-organized squall line during the overnight hours and produced a fair amount of wind damage across Nebraska and Kansas.

Here's the squall line:

More intense severe weather is expected on Monday across the upper Midwest, with very large hail again the main threat.
