HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Plenty of sunshine is on tap for today as temperatures rise into the 80s this afternoon. The warmest upper 80s will be in Southwest Nebraska. Winds will go from southwesterly to more southerly as the day goes on and will increase in speed. They won’t be too strong in the east, but as you go to the west, they will be stronger. In the Tri-Cities, winds of 10 to 20 mph are expected. Farther west, they could get up to 15 to 25 mph. Tonight, some showers and thunderstorms will develop out west. Near the Colorado border, there is a low-end chance of severe storms. For the rest of the area as this chance spreads east, there will be just a slight chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms. Look for low temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

For tomorrow, a few stray showers and thunderstorms will be possible with the best chance in the east. Otherwise, skies will be partly sunny. Winds will pick back up out of the south southeast at 10 to 20 mph. It’ll be a warm day with highs from the upper 70s north and east to around 90° southwest. Later in the day, a cold front will approach from the northwest. This could trigger some strong to severe thunderstorms late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be the main threats with the strongest thunderstorms. By around or shortly after midnight, the thunderstorms should clear out of our eastern communities.

Wednesday looks to be a quiet day between chances for rain and thunderstorms. With partly to mostly sunny skies, we’ll see highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Temperatures will heat up on Thursday ahead of the next cold front to impact our area. Look for highs from the mid 80s north to the mid 90s south. A cold front will push through the area from the northwest. This front could trigger showers and thunderstorms, but the chance will be better as you go to the north and northeast in our area. Severe storms will be possible.

Get ready for a big cool-down behind the cold front. Friday will be a partly cloudy and breezy day with highs from the low/mid 50s northwest to the upper 60s southeast. Highs temperatures on Saturday will be in the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. Sunday will be a bit milder with highs from the mid 60s northeast to the mid 70s southwest as our next warming trend begins. As of right now, I’m going with a dry forecast for Friday through Sunday. We’ll keep an eye on Friday night into Saturday as a chance for rain and thunderstorms may need to be included in future updates.
