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

The biggest weather story of the next few days involves the risk for
at least a few severe thunderstorms...mainly between tonight and
late Wednesday afternoon. These are actually separate rounds of
thunderstorm potential. Focusing first on todays weather...there
will be some lingering showers and weak storms this morning with the
most concentrated area of precipitation being north of Interstate
80...but the majority of the day should be dry with temperatures
climbing well into the 70s most places. Later tonight...there is
another chance for thunderstorms...generally favoring our Nebraska
counties more so than North Central Kansas. Some of these late-night
storms could be severe...with large hail the primary threat. 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 hail. By late Wednesday afternoon...a
well-defined cold front will be crossing the area. This front could
fire up a few more severe storms within eastern and southern
portions of our local area during the afternoon and early
evening...but the overall-higher chance for severe weather Wednesday
should focus along an axis from southern and eastern
Kansas...northeastward into Iowa. In the wake of all of these
primarily small storm chances...Thursday looks dry and
storm-free...area-wide.
