Southwest Nebraska will remain a little warm with highs in the lower 90s but thats better then its been the last couple of days. The Sandhills and Panhandle will be enjoying more seasonal weather with temperatures ranging in the low to upper 80s. The front will stall out near the Panhandle and Southwest Thursday evening. Those are the areas that could see a few isolated to scattered thunderstorms.

Friday into Friday evening more thunderstorms will fire in proximity to the front as it remains stalled or even drifts farther north.
