WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
614 AM CDT SAT JUL 19 2014

ALTHOUGH IT REMAINED DRY OVERNIGHT ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...A DECK OF LOW CLOUDS GRADUALLY DEVELOPED AND
OVERSPREAD MOST OF THE AREA FROM WEST-TO-EAST...SETTING THE STAGE
FOR WHAT WILL BE A MOSTLY CLOUDY START TO THE DAY IN MOST LOCATIONS.
EVEN THOUGH SOME OF THIS EXTENSIVE CLOUD COVER COULD LAST FOR MUCH
OF THE MORNING OR EVEN INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON...MOST OF THE AREA
SHOULD AVERAGE PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY SUNNY THIS
AFTERNOON...MARKING THE BEGINNING STAGES OF A NOTICEABLE RETURN TO
SUMMER HEAT THAT WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
TEMPERATURE-WISE TODAY...ALTHOUGH THE STREAK OF FIVE CONSECUTIVE
DAYS OF HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S SHOULD END ACROSS THE
AREA...HIGHS ARE ONLY FORECAST TO RANGE BETWEEN 82 AND 89
DEGREES...WHICH IS STILL SLIGHTLY BELOW AVERAGE FOR THIS TIME OF
YEAR. AS FOR PRECIPITATION CHANCES DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS...TODAY
IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN DRY...WHILE TONIGHT BRINGS IN JUST A SLIGHT
CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM MAINLY TO NEBRASKA PORTIONS OF THE AREA.
LOOKING BEYOND TONIGHT...ALTHOUGH THERE ARE FEW CHANCES FOR
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST MAINLY BETWEEN MONDAY NIGHT AND
TUESDAY NIGHT...BY FAR THE BIGGEST STORY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS
WILL BE A RETURN TO SUMMER HEAT. EACH DAY BETWEEN SUNDAY AND
TUESDAY...ACTUAL HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS ARE FORECAST TO GENERALLY CLIMB SOMEWHERE
BETWEEN 94 AND 100 DEGREES...WITH SOME SOUTHERN COUNTIES LIKELY
EXCEEDING 100 DEGREES. TAKING INTO ACCOUNT INCREASING DEWPOINTS AND
HUMIDITY LEVELS...EVEN THOSE PLACES THAT DO NOT SEE ACTUAL
TEMPERATURES REACH 100 ARE LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE HEAT INDEX VALUES
INTO AT LEAST THE 100 TO 105 RANGE...ESPECIALLY ON MONDAY AND
TUESDAY AFTERNOONS WITHIN COUNTIES MAINLY ALONG AND EAST OF HIGHWAY
281. GIVEN THE COOLER TEMPERATURES OF LATE...IT MIGHT BE EASY TO GET
CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY THIS RETURN TO SUMMER HEAT...SO PLEASE BE
PREPARED FOR THIS NOTABLE CHANGE IN THE WEATHER.
