HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - As we head into this evening, storms will develop along a trough to the west. These storms will move eastward throughout the evening and overnight. A few storms could be severe with the primary threats being large hail up to quarter size and damaging wind gusts to 60 mph. Can’t rule a tornado with initial storms. The time frame of seeing storms move through the Tri-cities will be between 8pm and 2am this evening/overnight. Be sure to have multiple ways of receiving weather alerts as you are out and about this evening.

It looks like fireworks won’t be the only thing going up this Independence Day as temperatures will be launching as well. It’s going to be a “red, white and whew!” 4th of July as highs rocket into 100s for most areas. The heat will continue all through next week, but temperatures may come down just a few degrees by the middle of the week. We should get a brief break from the heat come Friday. Then things heat up once again for next weekend. Highs on Tuesday will be similar to Monday (Independence Day). Highs on Wednesday should mostly just be in the 90s around the area. Similar temperatures are expected on Thursday. Friday will be cooler as a cool front sags to the south keeping highs in the low to upper 80s. Saturday will be into the upper 90s and low to mid 100s. Sunday next weekend could end up being the hottest day with highs from 100° to 110°. There will be nearly daily (nightly) thunderstorm chances. Some days will feature better chances than others.
