June 22, 2022 Morning Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Some clouds are lingering this morning for southern and eastern portions of the area. There may even be some sprinkles or very light rain this morning for some of those locations southeast of the Tri-Cities. Meanwhile, there is more sun to the north and west. More clouds will move in from the southwest as the day goes on. High temperatures today will range from the low/mid 80s south to the upper 80s/lower 90s north. Winds will pick up just a bit out of the south southeast with the breeziest conditions in the west. Much of the overnight will be quiet with partly to mostly cloudy skies. By tomorrow morning, a few showers and thunderstorms may be possible. Low temperatures tonight will be in the mid to upper 60s.
The thunderstorms in the morning have a low-end chance of becoming severe with large hail and damaging wind gusts as the main threat. More than anything, they could bring some decent rain to parts of the area. There could be a lull in the activity for most of the afternoon before more storms fire up later in the afternoon to the west and southwest of the Tri-Cities area. These have a much more likely chance of becoming severe as they push eastward across the area through the evening and overnight hours. Large hail, damaging wind gusts, and even isolated tornadoes will be possible. Before the storms, high temperatures on Thursday will range from the low/mid 80s east to the mid 90s west. Lows tomorrow night will mostly be in the 60s and lower 70s.
There will be a break from the storms for most of the day Friday as temperatures heat up to end the work week. One thing that may prevent temperatures from getting as hot as expected is the potential for some leftover clouds and easterly winds. Otherwise, look for highs mostly in the 90s with a possibility of 100° in Northern Kansas.
A cold front will push through Friday night. This will bring us our other chance of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. Severe storms will be possible. Cooler temperatures will come in behind the front for the weekend. High temperatures Saturday will be in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s. There may be a few leftover showers and thunderstorms in the morning. Sunday may likely be our coolest day with highs mostly in the mid to upper 70s. There may be some stubborn clouds that stick around. Temperatures will start to warm up on Monday as temperatures rise to the upper 70s and lower 80s. It gets even warmer Tuesday with highs into the mid to upepr 80s and lower 90s. More 90s are expected for the middle and end of the week with a possible cool-down coming for the weekend before Independence Day.
