NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Saturday night our severe weather threat should remain relatively low for central Nebraska. Severe storms could be possible for the panhandle and western Nebraska. Another cold front is set to move through the area on Sunday. Ahead of this front, southerly winds will draw warm, moist air back into the area which should lead to a warmer and slightly more humid day on Sunday. Temperatures should bounce back to the upper 80s to low 90s for all of western Nebraska.

As the front pushes through the area into Sunday evening, scattered strong to severe storms will be possible with large hail and damaging wind gusts as the primary threats. The SPC outlook has parts of Lincoln County in a marginal threat for this severe weather. However, the majority of these severe storms should develop to the east of us.
