NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - More hot weather is in store as we start this workweek with highs ranging from the mid-80s in our eastern counties to the mid-90s west. We expect some sunshine through the early afternoon, then the chances for showers/t-storms will increase for the late afternoon and evening.

Even though there are low chances for t-storms this evening, some of them could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. The Storm Prediction Center has us in a Marginal or Slight risk of severe weather depending on where you live. The best chance of severe stroms is east of Alliance and north of I-80.

High pressure works in for Tuesday as we will be back to sunshine, remain hot, and it will be our dry day. We say that because our weather is going to get more active in the days ahead. In the Wednesday through Sunday timeframe, we will have a train of low pressure systems moving through our forecast area. This will give us almost daily chances of showers/t-storms going through the rest of the workweek and into the weekend. Temperatures will stay warm to hot through Thursday as most will be close to 90, then going through the weekend, cooler air will work in with highs leveling off to close to 80.
