July 9, 2020 Morning Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After a rough night of severe weather across the area, today will be fairly quiet for the majority of us. Skies will become mostly sunny with temperatures rising into the mid to upper 80s. It may get up to around 90° closer to the Colorado border. There will be a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and only a slightly better chance this evening. While forecast models aren’t all in agreement, the most likely outcome is for some thunderstorms to develop somewhere in Western Nebraska and move east southeastward tonight. Many models have it weakening as it pushing into Central and especially Eastern Nebraska. Severe weather will be possible and is more likely in our western counties. Damaging winds gusts along with some large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible. Thunderstorms should be long gone by tomorrow morning. We’ll see lows tomorrow morning back down in the 60s.
Friday will be a warmer day as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 80 and lower 90s for Central and Eastern Nebraska. There will be a little more heat out west with mid to upper 90s. Much of the day will be quiet with mostly sunny skies. Thunderstorms are more likely to develop late in the day in South Dakota and push southeastward through Northern, then Eastern Nebraska. This will be a greater chance for severe weather than Thursday night, but the better chance may end out being just north and east of the Tri-Cities. Damaging wind gusts will once again be the biggest threat, but some large hail and isolated tornado threat does exist.
Some showers and thunderstorms may linger into early Saturday morning. The day will start with lows in the mid to upper 60s. By the afternoon, expect a little more clearing. Highs on Saturday will reach the mid to upper 80s and lower 90s.
Sunday will be a dry day with mainly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s and lower 90s.
Monday and Tuesday will feature a little more heat. Most will see highs into the 90s on Monday. Tuesday will depend on the timing of an approaching cold front. This may mean highs in the north will only be in the 80s with in Northern Kansas, 100°+ is possible. Each day will hold a chance of thunderstorms, although the better chances may come Tuesday night with the cold front. Wednesday will be cooler with highs mostly in the 80s. Wednesday should be a dry day.
