NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible tonight. Some storms could be severe. Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats. The chance of a tornado looks to be very low. Overnight tonight, there may be some areas of patchy fog.

The unsettled weather pattern will continue through the weekend and into next week. Occasional upper level disturbances as well as a cold front are expected to move through the area the next couple of days. Rain will be possible tonight and tomorrow night. There is a marginal risk for severe weather so there could be some isolated severe thunderstorms. The area looks to remain in a northwest flow aloft Sunday through the middle of next week. Disturbances could move through the area from time to time so rain can’t be completely ruled out on any day.

The strongest heating will be in the Panhandle with upper 90s to 100.

It will be hot and a bit muggy the next couple of days with highs in the low 90s. The cold front that arrives late Friday should cool us down into the upper 80s for the weekend. The cooling trend continues into the first half of next week with highs in the low to mid 80s.
