HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - As it stands right now, it is the second driest May on record for Hastings...Sixth driest for Grand Island. Thursday, followed by successive days after, will bring chances for rain to the Local 4 area, but will it translate to any meaningful totals in the rain gauge? Thursday morning will be dry with morning sun giving way to partly cloudy skies by the afternoon as an upper level wave moves into the Plains. Showers and thunderstorms will develop to the southwest and southeast of the Tri-Cities early in the afternoon with activity increasing late afternoon continuing into the early evening before diminishing by mid evening.

Scattered thunderstorms expected mid to last afternoon into the early evening.

Through the Memorial weekend there will be continued chances for rain each day, but most of the precipitation will struggle to move east leaving plenty of dry hours for outdoor activities. Friday and Saturday most of the precipitation will again be west of the Tri-Cities, along and west of Hwy 183. Sunday morning showers could push as far east as the Kearney area into north central Kansas. Another wave will bring more widespread rain farther east into the Tri-Cities Sunday night with better rain chances again on Monday night. Temperatures will consistently stay in the lower 80s through the weekend into the middle of next week.

Next 7 days.
