Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
627 AM CDT Thu Sep 14 2017

During the overnight hours...the vast majority of the NWS Hastings
coverage area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas
remained dry and seasonably-mild. However...a few rogue
thunderstorms popped up here or there...including one that passed
between Hastings and Grand Island around midnight...producing sharp
cloud-to-ground lightning. Looking over the weather situation the
next few days...the two biggest stories involve a couple more days
of well-above average heat...and also a Marginal Risk of severe
thunderstorms on Friday evening near an approaching cold front.
Getting into more detail...and starting with the and
tomorrow are expected to be the overall-hottest days of the
foreseeable future...with afternoon highs into at least the low to
mid 90s...and upper 90s in southern portions of the local area.
Thanks to the low relative humidity and breezy south winds...there
will be an elevated fire danger this afternoon...especially in North
Central Kansas. There will be a chance of thunderstorms across the
area tonight into Friday morning...but these are not expected to be
severe. a cold front approaches from the north Friday
evening...there appears to be a small risk of severe thunderstorms
mainly north of Highway 6 in Nebraska. This cold front will pass
through our region Saturday...resulting in a wide range in high
temperatures from only around 70 in places such as Ord Nebraska...up
to around 90 in the Beloit Kansas area. Behind this front...the
entire local area will experience cooler weather on Sunday with
highs mainly in the 70s. Halfway decent chances for thunderstorms
may then return Sunday night into Monday as the front starts lifting
back north.
