NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - More heat and humidity headline the forecast as we head through the upcoming week, but we’ll also keep a few chances for showers and storms in the forecast over the next few days.

Into the day on Tuesday we should once again see mostly sunny skies with skies becoming partly sunny into the evening hours as a few more storms will be possible as a the heating of the day plus a disturbance aloft moving through the area will give most of the area a chance to see some scattered thunderstorms. We could possibly see a few isolated severe storms on Tuesday as well - the SPC has outlined part of the coverage area under a marginal risk for severe weather with a slight risk across the northwestern corner of the state.

Dew points will likely again sit in the lower to middle 60s by Tuesday afternoon, so it will be muggy again, but it certainly could be worse. Winds should stay from the southeast at 10 to 20 MPH for the day on Tuesday.

The forecast remains largely unchanged as we head over the next week as it will be highlighted by above average temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Temperatures could be a bit cooler on Friday behind a cold front that will move through the state, but they should quickly jump back to the upper 80s and low 90s for the upcoming weekend. Rain chances will be highest over the next week on Thursday night into early Friday as storms are forecast to sweep across the state. Hot and dry weather is then on tap for Friday and the weekend.

Temperatures generally remain in the upper 80s to lower and middle 90s over the next week.
