Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
416 PM CDT Tue Apr 18 2017

The biggest weather story of the next few days across our local
coverage area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas
involves the risk for at least a few severe thunderstorms...mainly
between later tonight and early Wednesday evening. Focusing first on
late this afternoon into early this evening...there is the slightest
chance for a rogue thunderstorm to develop mainly in North Central
Kansas. However...the better chances for storms should hold off
until after dark tonight...and probably more so until after
midnight. If and when these storms develop...they will likely mainly
favor Nebraska portions of the area...and a few could become severe
and produce hail to at least the size of quarters and locally heavy
rain. During the daylight hours Wednesday...some places could still
see lingering thunderstorms from the overnight hours...a few of
which could still be capable of producing small hail. Overall
though...most of the area should remain dry most of the day.
Then...by late Wednesday afternoon...a well-defined cold front will
be crossing the area. This front could fire up another round of
severe storms within eastern and southern portions of our local area
during the afternoon and early evening...mainly southeast of a line
from Geneva Nebraska to Osborne Kansas. However... the
overall-higher chance for severe weather Wednesday should focus just
outside the NWS Hastings coverage area...along an axis from southern
and eastern Kansas...northeastward into Missouri and Iowa. In the
wake of these Wednesday storm chances...Thursday looks dry and
storm-free area-wide.
