WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
638 AM CDT MON AUG 25 2014

DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS...MOST LOCATIONS NEAR AND EAST OF THE
HIGHWAY 281 CORRIDOR IN SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL
KANSAS REMAINED DRY...WHILE FARTHER WEST...A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS MOVED INTO SEVERAL WESTERN COUNTIES SUCH AS
DAWSON...GOSPER FURNAS AND HARLAN BEFORE SUNRISE. LOOKING AHEAD TO
THE FORECAST FOR MOST OF THIS WORK WEEK...THE MAIN STORY IS THAT
THINGS ARE LOOKING MORE ACTIVE THAN IT IS USUALLY IS DURING THIS
TIME OF YEAR IN TERMS OF SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL. IN
SHORT...EACH AND EVERY DAY AND NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY CARRIES AT LEAST
SOME CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION...WITH THE OVERALL MOST LIKELY PERIODS
FOR POTENTIALLY WIDESPREAD AND HEAVIER RAINFALL FOCUSING DURING THE
LATE AFTERNOON AND OVERNIGHT HOURS TODAY...TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.
ALTHOUGH WIDESPREAD SEVERE STORMS ARE NOT EXPECTED THIS WEEK...AT
LEAST A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS ARE CERTAINLY POSSIBLE ON A
LOCALIZED BASIS. FOR MOST FOLKS...THE BIGGER STORY THIS WEEK WILL BE
THE POTENTIAL FOR MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF RAIN. ALTHOUGH IT PROBABLY WILL
NOT FALL ALL AT ONCE...A DECENT CHUNK OF THE LOCAL AREA STANDS A
CHANCE OF MEASURING AT LEAST 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN THIS WEEK...WITH
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY IN NEBRASKA PORTIONS OF
THE AREA. ALTHOUGH IT IS TOO SOON TO SAY EXACTLY WHAT PARTS OF THE
AREA MAY DEAL WITH AT LEAST MINOR FLOODING ISSUES THIS WEEK...IT
CERTAINLY IS A POSSIBILITY...ESPECIALLY IF TWO OR MORE ROUNDS OF
HEAVY RAIN FALL WITHIN A 24 HOUR PERIOD OVER THE SAME LOCATIONS.
EVEN THOUGH THE FORECAST FOR THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND IS CURRENTLY DRY
ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA...THERE IS NO GUARANTEE IT WILL STAY THAT
WAY...ESPECIALLY FOR SATURDAY...DEPENDING ON HOW QUICKLY OR SLOWLY A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES OUT OF THE AREA.
TEMPERATURE-WISE...ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF THE LOCAL AREA WILL
PROBABLY SEE HIGH TEMPERATURES AVERAGE SOMEWHERE IN THE 80S ON MOST
DAYS...THERE COULD BE SOME DECENT VARIABILITY ESPECIALLY THROUGH
MID-WEEK...WITH HIGHS ONLY REACHING THE MID TO UPPER 70S IN SOME
COUNTIES NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 IN NEBRASKA...WHILE MUCH OF NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS CLIMBS INTO THE 90S.
