NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a mild and partly cloudy Wednesay, these conditions are just going to continue to get better for our Thursday into our Friday with stellar conditions and warmer temperatures, but all of this is going to change once we get into the Memorial Day Weeekend with thunderstorm chances entering into the region.

During the morning Thursday, we were dealing with clear to mostly clear conditions with temperatures slightly on the chilly side with these indicies in the 30s and 40s and the winds were relatively light to breezy with speeds around 5 to 15 mph and the direction was from the north and west and with these north winds, this is allowing for the airmass to feel dry.

During the thick of the Memorial Day weekend, persons will need to have backup plans on hand because we will have a storm system moving into the area and this will allow for the area to see some shower and thunderstorm chances this weekend into Memorial Day itself. Some storms could be on the strong to severe side and we will continue to keep you posted on that. Besides that, we will see decline in temperatures during the weekend into early to mid next week as an active storm pattern will be entering into the area and it will keep the area wet and cloudy with cooler than average conditions for this time of year, making it feel more like early Spring instead of late Spring/Early Summer.
