HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Hot summer temperatures continue leading up to Independence Day. There will be plenty of sunshine tomorrow once again to heat temperatures even higher than today. Highs tomorrow afternoon soaring into the low to mid 90s. However, with southerly winds returning tomorrow, it may feel a bit warmer than the actual air temperature with feel-like temperatures in the upper 90s. Dry conditions will prevail for tomorrow with just a slight chance for an isolated storm well out west and far northern areas of the state. Temperatures will likely peak on Independence Day Tuesday ahead of a rather strong cold front. High temperatures ahead of the front will push into the low to mid 90s. It will be a little cooler to the northwest behind the front. The timing of the front will determine rain and thunderstorm chances late Tuesday into Tuesday night. This will determine where the best chance will be and whether your fireworks plans will be impacted. There is also the potential for severe weather Tuesday evening as the Storm Prediction Center has the entire viewing area in a Slight Risk. The primary threats look to be isolated large hail and damaging wind gusts. Localized heavy rainfall is also possible. Right now the time frame for the greatest threat of severe storms looks to be between 4PM and midnight Tuesday evening. In the wake of the front, much cooler, below average temperatures in the 70s and 80s are expected for most of the rest of the week. Chances for showers and storms Thursday night through Saturday.
