NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Another disturbance will emerge from the Rockies on Wednesday, reaching Western Nebraska by the afternoon. Strong heating, with highs climbing into the mid to upper 90 with a few 100 degree readings in the Panhandle, will continue to foster unstable conditions setting the tone for more storms late afternoon through the evening. From the Northern Sandhills into southwest parts of the state there is a risk for severe weather. Organized clusters of storms may form and push southeast, bringing an increased threat for damaging winds through the mid evening.
Hot, and humid conditions will carry through the rest of the week resulting in temperatures in the lower 90s. Saturday night, a weak cold front breaks the trend, allowing temperatures to tumble into the 80s Sunday through the early part of next week for much of Western Nebraska, with the Panhandle stubbornly returning to the low 90s Tuesday through Thursday.
