HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After one more round of storms this evening for southeast spots, things will be dry for the next several days. Showers and thunderstorms will develop this evening in north central Kansas and move off to the east northeast ahead of a surface trough that is making its way into eastern portions of the state. There is a marginal to slight risk of severe storms between 7pm and midnight this evening for southeast and eastern areas of the state. The primary risks being damaging wind gusts to around 60 mph and quarter size hail. These storms will quickly exit the region later this evening giving way to mostly clear skies overnight and light north northeast winds from 3 to 6 mph. Lows tonight will range from the 50s north to the mid 60s south.

With an influx of moist air at the surface, a cold front pushing through just after midnight, clear skies and light winds for the duration of the overnight hours, there will be some low stratus clouds along with some areas of fog developing for Sunday morning. This will burn off by late morning giving way to mainly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon with temperatures similar to today ranging from the 70s north to the low 90s south. Winds will be east north east behind the front between 6 and 12 mph in the afternoon. Going into Sunday night, mainly clear skies with easterly flow and temperatures falling into the mid 50s north to mid 60s south. Once again with very moist air at the surface, clear skies and generally light winds, there is the possibility of low clouds and areas of fog developing Monday morning.

A warm front will push through the region Monday morning with winds behind the front becoming southerly. This, along with a ridge of high pressure aloft, will make for hot days both Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures on Monday will range from the mid 80s north to the upper 90s south. Near record heat for Tuesday as high temperatures rocket into the low to upper 90s across the region. There is some relief on the way though as a strong cold front will be barreling its way south through the region late Tuesday night. Behind it, temperatures will be falling dramatically with highs 60s and 70s both Wednesday and Thursday just in time to start the Autumn season. Rain chances return as well with scattered showers Wednesday night through Friday.
