HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Today will be another hot and windy day for the area. South southwest winds will increase to 15 to 30 mph with some gusts up to 40 mph. High temperatures will make it to the upper 90s and lower 100s. There will be a few clouds and perhaps a stray shower today, but the better chance of a few showers and thunderstorms will come later this afternoon and this evening as a cold front pushes southeast into the area. Both ahead of and behind the cold front, some showers and thunderstorms will be possible with some severe storms possible. The best chance will be in North Central Nebraska. The lowest chance will be in Southeast Nebraska and North Central Kansas. The main threats with any severe storms will be large hail and damaging wind gusts.

The cold front will be just south and east of the Tri-Cities tomorrow morning and will slowly push southeastward during the day Tuesday. This will keep most of the area cooler with highs from the mid 80s northwest to the mid 90s southeast. Skies behind the cold front will be partly to at times mostly cloudy. By later in the day and into the evening, thunderstorms will again be possible. The better chance for this will be in the far south and southeast. Most will likely stay dry. Look for lows tomorrow night mainly in the 60s with some upper 50s northwest.

Thunderstorm chances will continue off and on through the rest of the week. The better chances will come in the evening and overnight hours. The chance late Wednesday and Wednesday night looks lower. Thursday or Thursday night might be a better chance. The best chance may come Friday night into Saturday with the next cold front. Sunday and Sunday night only has a smaller chance.
