A few thunderstorms tonight and a little less heat tomorrow...
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After a very hot, humid day it will continue to be a muggy night across the region which provides the fuel for a few thunderstorms. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will try to migrate west to east this evening. Warm air aloft may inhibit some of the storm activity, but north of the Tri-Cities a few could strengthen enough to maybe produce some damaging winds.
Areas to the east of the Tri-Cities could see a few lingering showers carry over into early Wednesday, otherwise the day will begin with some cloud cover which will decrease as the day wears on . Wednesday will still be fairly ‘hot’ but not AS hot as temperatures climb into the low to mid 90s. But that is not nearly as hot as Tuesday’s highs and in fact the next couple of days will provide a brief reprieve from the excessive heat.
Friday into Saturday, the upper level high pressure ridge will strengthen, providing more hot weather returning as temperatures push into the mid 90s to 100 with ‘feels like’ readings from 100 to 106 degree range. Saturday night into Sunday the ridge breaks down and a cold front is forecast to sweep through the area bringing better chances for some needed rain, not to mention cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s Sunday, while only climbing into the lower 90s early next week with low end chances for thunderstorms.
