June 29, 2020 Morning Forecast
Get set for a hot and humid stretch of weather with very few chances for rain.
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Another warm and sticky day is on the way with breezy winds out of the south southeast at 12 to 22 mph.
For the eastern half of the area, the humidity will be quite high, which will keep temperatures from getting super hot. Those areas will see highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Farther west, as the humidity gets a little lower, actually air temperatures will be hotter with highs in the mid to upper 90s. There could be some 100° to 105° temperatures in Southwest Nebraska. Skies are mostly cloudy this morning, which is slowing the warming initially. Clouds will partially clear up through the day.
We'll see a few passing clouds on a warm and sticky night. We'll see lows mostly in the low to mid 70s. Our western counties could drop into the upper 60s
TUESDAY & TUESDAY NIGHT:
A cold front will make a push through the western half of the state through the day Tuesday. Ahead of the front, it'll be humid with temperatures climbing back into the 90s. Southeasterly winds will be breezy again at 10 to 20 mph. To the west of the front, temperatures will mostly top out in the 80s and the humidity won't be as high.
Tuesday evening, that cold front will be the focal point of developing thunderstorms. Chances will be greater the farther north you go in the Local4 viewing area. There's still a slight chance farther south. Severe weather will be possible. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be the main threats. An isolated tornado is not likely, but is possible.

WEDNESDAY THOUGH FRIDAY:
Wednesday will be less humid behind the cold front. It'll be cooler, but still quite warm with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. There's still a small chance of rain and thunderstorms, but it will mostly likely remain dry for the vast majority of the area.

The chances of rain and thunderstorms during these two days is slim, but not impossible. The majority of the area will remain on the dry side.
