NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - Seasonally warm temperatures with periodic storm chance will characterize the weekend weather over the Greather Nebraska area. The current weather pattern makes pinpointing timing and location of thunderstorms difficult as a series of subtle disturbances run through the region on the northwest flow of winds above us. Any isolated showesr that develop could still linger in Southwest Nebraska early in the day Saturday before another wave evolving out of the Black Hills brings addition storm chances from the Northwest Panhandle through the soutwest part of the state Saturday afternoon and evening. A few storms producing damaging winds or large hail cannot be ruled out.
