HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Sunday has been a cooler day with the clouds and rain that has fallen south of I-80 throughout the day. A few places in Gosper county have received estimated rainfalls of 10 inches which prompted the NWS in Hastings to issue a flood warning until 10PM CDT in southern Gosper and northern Furnas counties. If you encounter flooded road ways, remember to turn around don’t drown. Most deaths with flooding occur in vehicles.

Overnight tonight expect temperatures to fall into the mid to upper 60′s under clearing skies. You could see areas of fog early Monday morning as temperatures fall to near dew point temperatures. Temperatures will soar once again to the low 90′s under mostly sunny skies on your Monday. Winds will be out of the south at 10-15 mph.

Looking ahead to the middle of the work week, it looks like temperatures will be soaring into the upper 90′s for most of the area. There’s a good chance we will see heat indices in the triple digits from 100 to 105 degrees. Would not be surprised if we see a triple digit temperature reading downtown Grand Island.

Next best chance of rain will be Thursday night through Saturday. Until then, lots of hot, sunny days.
