A frontal boundary right over us has given the forecast area an almost daily chance of showers/t-storms, especially in the late afternoon and early evening, with the storms fueled by the daytime heating. Most of the moisture has been in the Panhandle, but that will change as the whole system moves to the east, giving Central NE the chance of a lot more moisture in the coming week. Temperatures will stay within a few degrees of average on most days, as we cool a little going through the weekend, and warm back up for next week. Saturday brings partly to mostly cloudy skies with Central NE having a 40-50% chance of showers/t-storms and highs in the lower 70s, and Western NE having a 60-70% chance of storms and highs in the mid- to upper 70s; it will be breezy to windy through the weekend for most.

Sunday brings partly cloudy skies and a chance of showers/t-storms; highs in the mid- to upper 70s. Then for Monday and Tuesday we dry out with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. A small area of high pressure is over us, but we still maintain a slight chance of t-storms with highs in the lower 80s. The shower/t-storm chances increase as another system settles in over us Wednesday and Thursday; highs fall back from the lower 80s into the upper 70s. We will have a lot more moisture chances ahead, but they will be scattered. Models have this slightly warm pattern with more-moisture-than-average lasting through the first week of June. This should help with our drought, which is still in the severe category for most of Central and Western NE.
