A cold front has pushed well to the east of the local forecast area, but some instability aloft and an increasing low-level jet will try and bring increasing clouds and some shower-and-thunderstorm activity back into the region Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Most of the evening looks to be dry but rain will begin to move in between 10 PM and midnight. High pressure will then build across the area giving us very pleasant conditions for most of Sunday and into Monday. Another cold front will slide across the region Monday night and into Tuesday. This boundary will bring our region another chance for scattered precipitation but chaces remain rather low for North Platte as of now. Look for seasonably cool temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday behind this cold front.
