WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
650 AM CDT MON AUG 25 2014

DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS...MOST LOCATIONS NEAR AND EAST OF THE
HIGHWAY 281 CORRIDOR IN SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL
KANSAS REMAINED DRY...WHILE FARTHER WEST...A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS MOVED INTO SEVERAL WESTERN COUNTIES SUCH AS
DAWSON...GOSPER FURNAS AND HARLAN BEFORE SUNRISE. LOOKING AHEAD TO
THE FORECAST FOR MOST OF THIS WORK WEEK...THE MAIN STORY IS THAT
THINGS ARE LOOKING MORE ACTIVE THAN USUAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IN
TERMS OF SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL. IN SHORT...EACH AND
EVERY DAY AND NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY CARRIES AT LEAST SOME CHANCE OF
PRECIPITATION...WITH THE OVERALL MOST LIKELY PERIODS FOR POTENTIALLY
WIDESPREAD AND HEAVIER RAINFALL FOCUSING DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON
AND OVERNIGHT HOURS TODAY...TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. ALTHOUGH
WIDESPREAD SEVERE STORMS ARE NOT EXPECTED THIS WEEK...AT LEAST A FEW
STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS ARE CERTAINLY POSSIBLE ON A LOCALIZED BASIS.
FOR MOST FOLKS...THE BIGGER STORY THIS WEEK WILL BE THE POTENTIAL
FOR MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF RAIN. ALTHOUGH IT PROBABLY WILL NOT FALL ALL
AT ONCE...A DECENT CHUNK OF THE LOCAL AREA STANDS A CHANCE OF
MEASURING AT LEAST 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN THIS WEEK...WITH LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY IN NEBRASKA PORTIONS OF THE
AREA. ALTHOUGH IT IS TOO SOON TO SAY EXACTLY WHAT PARTS OF THE AREA
MAY DEAL WITH AT LEAST MINOR FLOODING ISSUES THIS WEEK...IT
CERTAINLY IS A POSSIBILITY...ESPECIALLY IF TWO OR MORE ROUNDS OF
HEAVY RAIN FALL WITHIN A 24 HOUR PERIOD OVER THE SAME LOCATIONS.
EVEN THOUGH THE FORECAST FOR THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND IS CURRENTLY DRY
ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA...THERE IS NO GUARANTEE IT WILL STAY THAT
WAY...ESPECIALLY FOR SATURDAY...DEPENDING ON HOW QUICKLY OR SLOWLY A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES OUT OF THE AREA.
TEMPERATURE-WISE...ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF THE LOCAL AREA WILL
PROBABLY SEE HIGH TEMPERATURES AVERAGE SOMEWHERE IN THE 80S ON MOST
DAYS...THERE COULD BE SOME DECENT VARIABILITY ESPECIALLY THROUGH
MID-WEEK...WITH HIGHS ONLY REACHING THE MID TO UPPER 70S IN SOME
COUNTIES NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80 IN NEBRASKA...WHILE MUCH OF NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS CLIMBS INTO THE 90S.
