HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Through the morning, clouds will be clearing up and skies will become mostly sunny. It’ll be another very warm day with highs this afternoon getting into the mid to upper 80s and lower 90s. South southwest winds will be around 5 to 15 mph. By this evening, there’s a chance for a few thunderstorms to fire up over Eastern Nebraska. But the better chance of new thunderstorms firing up will be over the High Plains to the west. These will then push eastward through the evening and overnight hours. There will be a chance of severe storms, but the greatest chance will likely be over western areas where large hail and severe wind gusts will be possible. These are expected to weaken as they push eastward. Much of the activity will diminish by tomorrow morning. Look for lows tomorrow morning in the mid 50s to the mid 60s.

Tomorrow will again mostly be dry, but chances will increase a little Wednesday night. Any new thunderstorms that develop will be a little less organized and the severe weather threat will be a bit lower. Before the storms, Wednesday will be another very warm day with highs in the 80s to near 90°. For the rest of the week, chances of showers and thunderstorms will be better Thursday through Saturday. Some of these could even occur during the daytime hours. With the extra clouds and chance of rain, temperatures will be a bit cooler to end the week with more mid 70s to mid 80s Thursday through Saturday. As rain and thunderstorm chances come down early next week, but still remain in the forecast, temperatures will come back up again with highs mostly in the 80s. The good news is that the severe weather threat isn’t overly high. One thing to watch is the continued threat for some areas to see some localized flooding, similar to what has occurred over the last week.
