Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
706 AM CDT Mon Aug 22 2016

Around sunrise on this Monday morning...mostly clear skies ruled the
local area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas.
Southerly breezes helped keep overnight temperatures roughly 10 to
15 degrees milder than yesterday morning...with morning lows mainly
in the low 60s. After weekend weather that provided more of a taste
of early fall than anything...the weather will quickly remind us
that summer is still very much in warmer and
increasingly-humid air builds back in over the next few
days...followed by a risk for at least a few strong to severe
thunderstorms focused during the Tuesday afternoon and evening time
frame. Focusing first on will remain dry across the local high temperatures climb to between 86 and 92 degrees. This
warm-up will be fueled in part by quite breezy south
winds...especially by August sustained speeds average
15 to 25 MPH with gusts to over 30 MPH. Late tonight into Tuesday
morning...the vast majority of the region should remain
rain-free...but a few very spotty showers or weak thunderstorms
cannot be totally ruled out. A better chance for isolated to
scattered thunderstorms...including a few severe storms...will
develop Tuesday afternoon and evening...with large hail and damaging
winds the main threats. Although the entire area stands a Marginal
Risk of seeing a severe storm Tuesday...counties generally near and
east of Highway 281 in Nebraska appear to stand a slightly higher
risk. In the wake of a passing cold front...temperatures will cool
down a bit for Wednesday with highs only around 80 degrees. Chances
for showers and storms continue Wednesday...but mainly for areas
south of Interstate 80...including North Central Kansas.
