HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Strong to marginally severe storms continue to make their way through our northeast counties at this hour. The main threats being damaging wind gusts and large hail. There continues to be a severe thunderstorm watch until 3 AM CDT for our northern counties. Lows tonight will drop into the 60s in the north and west and into the 70s for the south and east.

With the boundary still remaining there area, there will be a slight chance of additional thunderstorms on Friday. Meanwhile, another hot one is expected with highs in the upper 80s and low to mid 90s for much of the area. A cold front will begin to push through on Saturday, giving the area a wide range in temperatures. Highs will be anywhere from the low/mid 80s in the northwest to the low/mid 90s in the south and east. During the afternoon and continuing into Saturday night, showers and thunderstorms are expected to fire up along that front. This could end out being much of the areas best chance for rain in the days ahead. The heaviest rain will likely fall somewhere in Central or Eastern Nebraska. It likely won’t be as heavy farther west. Some isolated severe storms will be possible.

There may be some lingering thundershowers Sunday morning as everything slowly drifts southeastward. It’ll be a bit cooler with highs mostly in the low to mid 80s. The cold front that brought the cooldown to the area will begin to help warm things up early next week as it lifts back to the north as a warm front. It’ll bring a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms Sunday night. Highs on Monday return to the mid 80s to mid 90s from east to west. There will be a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will range from the upper 80s east to the upper 90s west. The next cooldown will come as we move into the Labor Day holiday weekend.
