WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
655 AM CDT SUN MAY 17 2015

EARLY THIS MORNING...DRY WEATHER DOMINATED THE VAST MAJORITY OF
SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...ALTHOUGH THERE
WERE A FEW SPRINKLES OR PATCHES OF LIGHT DRIZZLE HERE OR THERE.
DURING THE NIGHT...MOST PLACES SAW ONLY LIGHT RAIN
ACCUMULATIONS...IF ANY AT ALL...AS THE AREA DODGED THE BULLET ON A
POTENTIAL SEVERE WEATHER EVENT THAT WAS ORIGINALLY EXPECTED TO GET
UNDERWAY SATURDAY EVENING.

LOOKING AT THE SUNDAY WEATHER FORECAST ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA OF
SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...MOST PLACES WILL
EXPERIENCE A DRY BUT BREEZY DAY...AS WESTERLY WINDS INCREASE TO
SUSTAINED SPEEDS OF GENERALLY 15 TO 20 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS. WHILE
A FEW SPRINKLES OR PATCHES OF DRIZZLE ARE POSSIBLE THIS
MORNING...THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS COULD ACTUALLY BRING
A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY TO NEBRASKA PORTIONS OF THE
AREA. ALTHOUGH THESE STORMS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE SEVERE...SOME
SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS ARE NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION. ONCE ANY
POSSIBLE EARLY EVENING SHOWERS OR STORMS DIE OFF...THE REMAINDER OF
THE NIGHT WILL BE DRY. HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON WILL CLIMB
INTO THE UPPER 70S TO NEAR 80 DEGREES IN MOST PLACES...MAKING THIS
THE WARMEST DAY OUT OF THE NEXT SEVERAL.

TURNING TO MONDAY...A NOTICEABLY COOLER AIRMASS WILL ARRIVE IN THE
WAKE OF A PASSING COLD FRONT...WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ONLY EXPECTED
TO REACH THE LOW TO MID 60S IN MOST OF THE AREA. IT WILL BE DRY
MONDAY...BUT BREEZY AGAIN...THIS TIME OUT OF THE NORTH.

TAKING A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE REST OF THE UPCOMING WORK
WEEK...BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATURES WILL PERSIST. TUESDAY AFTERNOON
AND ESPECIALLY TUESDAY NIGHT WILL BRING VERY GOOD CHANCES OF RAIN TO
THE AREA...WITH MANY PLACES EXPECTED TO RECEIVE AT LEAST ONE-QUARTER
TO ONE-HALF INCH. SOME OF THIS RAIN COULD LINGER INTO
WEDNESDAY...WHILE THURSDAY SHOULD BE DRY. THEN TOWARD THE END OF THE
WEEK...CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INCREASE
AGAIN...ESPECIALLY FROM FRIDAY INTO THIS WEEKEND. ALTHOUGH IT IS FAR
TOO EARLY TO SAY FOR SURE...THERE COULD BE THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME
SEVERE STORMS DURING THIS TIME.
