Original Story

The Nebraskaland Days board released a statement Saturday afternoon about the impending weather and what their plan is if Saturdays rain continued. The statement read:

"We're currently monitoring a line of rain moving into the area from the West. At this time, National Weather Service believes the lead edge of the rain will reach North Platte by about 4 pm. We'll be checking back in with NOAA throughout the afternoon. If that line of weather continues to hold together, we'll initiate a plan to hold doors and hold the show for a period of time. That call will be made NO LATER than 4:00 PM.

We are being advised that once the line clears our area, we should be clear for the rest of the night.

It is cool and the arena is obviously a bit muddy, so please dress accordingly when you come to the show tonight [Saturday.]"
