Warmer and more unsettled weather expected Tuesday and beyond
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Warmer weather with the potential thunderstorms headline the forecast over the next few days across western Nebraska. On Tuesday, a warm front is expected to slide across the area, which combined with an upper level disturbance moving out of Colorado will lead to a decent chance for storms Tuesday afternoon and evening across the area. Some storms are expected to be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds possible.
Much of the coverage area is under a slight risk for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center - meaning that scattered severe storms are possible in these areas.
Temperatures are forecast to reach the mid 70s to upper 80s across western Nebraska, with the warmest readings in the Panhandle.
Morning temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 50s across Greater Nebraska with afternoon temperatures in North Platte still forecast to stay below average for early August, with readings topping out at around 80°. Average highs this time of year are still in the upper 80s.
Wednesday and beyond will continue to hold daily chances for some off and on showers and storms. Temperatures will gradually warm back to the mid to upper 80s on Wednesday and Thursday, with readings expected back into the low to mid 90s for Friday into the weekend and into early next week.
