NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - Temperatures Monday and Tuesday will remain on the warm side with low- to mid-70s for highs. That’s still above our average high this time of year of 66. After another late-season round of possibly severe t-storms Tuesday evening, we will be much cooler to finish the week with highs falling into the upper 50s.

We will have lots of sun for Monday, but a northerly flow will keep us cooler than we have been in the last couple of weeks. No more 80s and 90s will be in the forecast, but 70s are not bad this time of year. A cold front will move through on Tuesday, and it will be a strong one, seperating the warm air over us from much cooler air over the Rockies and Pacific Northwest.

This will cause another round of severe weather Tuesday afternoon into evening. Storm timing should be around 4 to 11PM with the biggest threats being large hail to start and damaging wind later in the day. We will have the possibility of heavy rain again, which is good because we’ve been in a dry pattern.

Behind the front we will be windy for Wednesday but also back to a mostly sunny to partly cloudy pattern. Highs mid- to late week will be in the upper 50s as we remain dry. More sunshine is expected through the weekend, and we will be warmer with highs in the mid- to upper 60s.
