Increasing clouds overnight followed by showers and thunderstorms for Thursday
September 1, 2021 Overnight Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Clouds will be on the increase from the west tonight as showers and thunderstorms move into our western communities after midnight. The chance for severe storms is fairly limited, mainly confined to our extreme northwest (northwest of Ainsworth). We’ll see overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s. The showers and thunderstorms will push east across the area throughout the day on Thursday. This could lead to a rather damp day for a large part of Central and eventually Eastern Nebraska. Later in the day, it is possible that new thunderstorms could fire up to the northwest of the Tri-Cities and will push southeastward through the area. This is when there will be a better chance of strong to severe thunderstorms. Everything will continue eastward, clearing out from west to east through the night. By Friday morning, only a few lingering showers should be left in the east. Expect some good rainfall amounts for a large part of the area. 0.50″ to 1.00″ of rain will be pretty common for a large part of the area. Some may get a little less (best chance west). Some may get more (best chance southeast). Sometimes predicting exact amounts with thunderstorms can be way off. There’s certainly a chance that we could see some areas pick up several inches of rain. Localized flooding will be possible. Because of the clouds and rain, high temperatures will be on the cooler side. Highs will mostly be in the mid to upper 70s. There will be some lower 80s in the southeast and the southwest. Low temperatures tomorrow night will drop into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s.
There is still a slight chance for rain and thunderstorms Friday and Friday night, but much of that time will be dry. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with cooler temperatures continuing for much of the area. Once again, highs will mostly be in the mid to upper 70s and lower 80s. Only a small chance of rain exists on Saturday. Otherwise, look for partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid to upper 70s to around 80°. There will be a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be slightly warmer with highs in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. Labor Day Monday will likely be the warmest day for many of us with highs in the 80s and lower 90s with the warmest temperatures in the west. A backdoor cool front will cool things back a little Tuesday with highs in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. Both Monday and Tuesday should be fairly sunny. Very similar temperatures are expected through the end of next week.
