NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - With an upper-level ridge sitting over the Western Plains, we will be cooking in the heat throughout this weekend staying in the upper 80s and mid 90s. The southwestern regions were the warmest Saturday and the sandhills stayed the coolest as a cold front begins to drape itself in. Our SPC outlook has increased for Saturday evening with north-central regions of Nebraska extending down to northern parts of Lincoln county now being in an enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms.

Sunday brings even warmer temperatures with forecasted highs for North Platte being in the upper 90s. Patchy fog could also be seen in the early morning hours on Sunday. If you plan on being outside be sure to stay hydrated and weather aware as a few isolated thunderstorms could form in the evening hours. Our SPC outlook for Sunday is looking much more friendly with just some very low chances for most of Nebraska.

Thankfully, a cold front will move on through Sunday to give us cooler and more comfortable temperatures to start our work week. The front will cool us down to the lower 80′s on Monday. We will remain in the upper 80′s to low 90s throughout the remainder of our workweek. Mostly sunny skies with some chances of isolated thunderstorms through the week.
