Better rain chances coming up
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - While we’ve seen small chances for showers and thunderstorms most days recently, we’ll see those chances picking up over the next few days thanks to a few fronts and disturbances moving through the region.
Sunny, hot conditions look to persist into the first half of our Wednesday, a slow moving cold front will bring a storm threat to the region as we had through the afternoon and evening. With highs again pushing into the mid and upper 90s, the clouds will bubble up and storms should begin popping in the mid afternoon hours, initially posing a threat for large hail, damaging winds, heavy downpours with a low chance for an isolated tornado. As storms mature they will merge into a complex capable of damaging winds and quickly push southeast away from the Central Sandhills by mid evening.
A couple of disturbances embedded in the upper level wind flow will keep chances for storms in the forecast through the remainder of the work week. Boundaries of rain cooled air laid down from the previous day’s storms will also come into play as to where new storms develop. Temperatures Thursday and Friday will briefly moderate into the lower 90s as the front clears the area, but it will not cool down much behind it, for on Saturday we’ll warm back into the middle 90s. Then by the end of the weekend and through early next week, upper level high pressure builds back to the north sealing more hot but mainly dry weather into the region through at least Wednesday.
