Stormy Tuesday night; hot but not as humid on Wednesday
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - A cold front moving in from the west will bring an opportunity for some stormy weather across parts of the coverage area on Tuesday evening. The Storm Prediction Center’s forecast has a marginal and slight risk for severe weather across parts of north central Nebraska back towards Lincoln County.
Large hail and damaging winds gusts are the primary threats for storms Tuesday evening, though some locally heavy rain will be possible across north central Nebraska. For North Platte, most if not all of the activity should stay to our north and east through Tuesday evening.
Wednesday will be another hot day, but there will be relief from the humidity as dew points behind the passing cold front should fall into the 40s for most. Day time highs should reach the upper 80s to low 90s with sunny skies.
The rest of the week into the holiday weekend will remain hot with highs in the low to mid 90s. We should be dry on Wednesday and for most of Thursday with some small chances for rain returning Thursday night, Friday, and into the holiday weekend.
