Summer-like heat, isolated storms
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Storms were a little more isolated today, given the stagnant weather pattern that’s in place. A few of these will carry over into the early evening but none of these storm have much supporting them, so they will quietly fade away after sunset and the skies will clear. Wednesday will bring similar weather as Tuesday’s, with toasty temperatures again pushing into the 80s and lower 90s.
As the day heats up, the instability will pulse up another round of isolated showers and thunderstorms in Western and Central Nebraska in the vicinity of the Tri-Cities. Over eastern areas, a cold front will back into the state moving east to west. That will provide a focus for more scattered thunderstorms in the extreme eastern part of the state closing in on the Lincoln area.
Scattered to isolated thunderstorms will develop again on Thursday and Friday which may increase in coverage due to more moisture moving into the area. Saturday a cold front sliding south through the area will provide a better focus for rain with a few isolated stronger storms possible along the front. Cooler air will stream behind the front dropping high temperatures in the 70s through Monday.
