Additional isolated strong to severe storms possible before midnight
July 22, 2023 - Evening forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Some additional isolated strong to severe storms are still possible before midnight. The primary threats with any storm that goes severe will quarter-size hail and severe wind gusts to around 60 mph. Although there have been some isolated cases this afternoon of tennis ball size hail in Furnas county, most reports have been closer to quarter size. Most of these storms will clear out or diminish by sunset. The rest of the night looks rather quiet with mostly clear skies. Lows will slip back into the low to mid 60s Sunday morning. Sunday will feature a lot more sunshine as temperatures heat up more. Highs will climb into the low to mid 90s east to upper 90s west.
The upper level ridge of high pressure over the western U.S. will slip eastward next week. This will bring in the super steamy heat beginning Monday and it looks to stick around at least through the last weekend of July. High temperatures each day in the mid to upper 90s and lower 100s will be common, with many days seeing heat index values of 100° to 110°. The vast majority of the area will remain dry. The best chance for rain looks to come Thursday evening through Friday morning as a weak cold front moves through the area. Right now it’s only looking like a slight chance at best.
