HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - A few thunderstorms developed to the northeast of the viewing area this afternoon. Staring to see a few isolated storms currently developing along a few boundaries southeast of the Tri-Cities. These storms to the southeast of Hastings are in an area of higher instability and shear. This activity is something to watch over the next hour and could become strong to severe if it gets organized. Additional storms to pop up in south central spots this evening. However, the next round of storms to keep an eye on overnight will be storms that move out of eastern Wyoming and the Dakotas. A cluster of storms will move into northwest Nebraska and make its way east and southeast overnight. Forecast models are signaling severe storms being more likely over northwest portions of the state. As the cluster moves into central areas early tomorrow morning, it should weaken meaning less of a threat for severe storms in south and southeast parts of the state.

As far as this evening and overnight, there will be increasing clouds with a chance of showers and storms. It will be steamy as well with lows tonight bottoming out in the mid to upper 60s in most spots. A few lingering showers and storms are possible along and east of highway 281 just after sunrise. Skies will remain partly cloudy until noon, becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Highs tomorrow ranging from the low 80s east to the mid 90s west. Much warm as you head south into Kansas where temperatures once again could reach the century mark.

Less of a chance for showers and storms Monday night into Tuesday morning. The best chance for any rain looks to stay out in the panhandle. Lows Monday night will once again fall into the mid to upper 60s. Left over clouds from storms out west will make for a partly sunny start to the day on Tuesday. With gradual clearing from west to east, skies will become mostly sunny Tuesday afternoon with highs in the low 80s north to low 90s south. A better chance for overnight and early morning showers and storms appears likely for Tuesday into Wednesday morning. The best chance for this activity looks to be along and south of the interstate. Highs will be peak both Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a somewhat strong cold front that will move through Friday. The weather pattern will shift Thursday with shower and storm chances shifting to afternoon and evening. Cooler temperatures will arrive for next weekend in the wake of that cold front.
