WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
718 AM CDT FRI APR 18 2014

TO SUMMARIZE THE SEVEN DAY FORECAST FOR SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS IN THE SIMPLEST WAY POSSIBLE...TODAY WILL BE
DRY AND WINDY...SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SUNDAY WILL BRING CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...MONDAY AND TUESDAY ARE LOOKING DRY
IN BETWEEN WEATHER SYSTEMS...AND THEN MORE CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS AND POTENTIALLY STRONG WINDS ARRIVE BETWEEN TUESDAY
NIGHT AND THURSDAY. TEMPERATURE-WISE...THE NEXT WEEK WILL AVERAGE
ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR...WITH HIGHS ON MOST DAYS
SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE UPPER 60S AND UPPER 70S...AND SOME 80S LIKELY
ON A FEW DAYS ESPECIALLY IN NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS. TAKING A CLOSER
LOOK AT TODAY...THE MAIN STORY WILL BE A NICE WARM-UP...ALTHOUGH IT
COMES AT THE PRICE OF FAIRLY STRONG SOUTH WINDS THAT WILL AVERAGE
SUSTAINED SPEEDS OF 20-30 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO AROUND 35 MPH.
TEMPERATURE-WISE...HIGHS TODAY ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA SHOULD TOP
OUT BETWEEN 68 AND 72 DEGREES...OR ROUGHLY 15 DEGREES MILDER THAN
THURSDAY. LOOKING AHEAD INTO THE WEEKEND...THE MAJORITY OF THE DAY
ON SATURDAY SHOULD REMAIN DRY...ALTHOUGH A COLD FRONT SAGGING IN
FROM THE NORTHWEST COULD SPARK SOME LATE AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS FOR
PARTS OF THE LOCAL AREA. MUCH BETTER CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS THEN ARRIVE SATURDAY NIGHT...ESPECIALLY FOR NEBRASKA
PORTIONS OF THE LOCAL AREA. EASTER SUNDAY WILL FEATURE A CONTINUED
DECENT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR PARTS OF THE
AREA...BUT IT IS NOT LIKELY TO RAIN ALL DAY...AS MOST PRECIPITATION
SHOULD BE SCATTERED IN NATURE AND PROBABLY FAVOR THE AFTERNOON MORE
THAN THE MORNING. ALTHOUGH WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED
THIS WEEKEND...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING
HOURS ON BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY COULD SPARK AT LEAST A FEW
MARGINALLY SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HAIL AND STRONG WIND
GUSTS...ESPECIALLY FOR AREAS SOUTH OF A LINE FROM ELWOODTO GRAND
ISLANDTO SILVER CREEK NEBRASKA. ON A POSITIVE NOTE...THERE IS A
DECENT CHANCE THAT MUCH OF THE LOCAL AREA WILL RECEIVE AT LEAST
ONE-HALF INCH OF MUCH-NEEDED RAIN BEFORE MONDAY ROLLS AROUND.
