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

THIS WEEKEND WILL FEATURE THE FIRST OF TWO LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS TO
AFFECT SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS DURING THE
NEXT SEVEN DAYS. ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF THE LOCAL AREA WILL LIKELY
STAY DRY THROUGH THE DAYTIME HOURS TODAY...THERE IS AT LEAST SOME
CHANCE FOR LATE AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS ALONG A WEAK COLD FRONT
SAGGING INTO THE AREA FROM THE NORTH. TO THE SOUTH OF THIS
FRONT...WINDS TODAY WILL REMAIN RATHER BREEZY OUT OF THE
SOUTH...WHILE THOSE AREAS THAT SEE THIS FRONT PASS BY WILL
EVENTUALLY OBSERVE A LIGHTER NORTHEAST BREEZE. STARTING THIS
EVENING...AND LASTING THROUGH THE DAYTIME HOURS ON EASTER SUNDAY AND
EVEN INTO SUNDAY NIGHT...THERE WILL BE VARIOUS...OFF-AND-ON CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE AREA. IT WILL CERTAINLY NOT
RAIN THIS ENTIRE TIME...BUT WHERE AND WHEN IT DOES...SOME LOCALLY
HEAVY DOWNPOURS ARE LIKELY. THERE IS EVEN AN OUTSIDE CHANCE FOR A
FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HAIL AND GUSTY
WINDS. ALTHOUGH WEEKEND RAINFALL TOTALS WILL LIKELY VARY QUITE A
BIT...THE MAJORITY OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL
KANSAS IS EXPECTED TO RECEIVE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN ONE-QUARTER AND
THREE-QUARTERS OF AN INCH...WITH AT LEAST LIMITED AREAS EXCEEDING
ONE INCH...ESPECIALLY WHERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE MOST CONCENTRATED.
TEMPERATURES BOTH TODAY AND SUNDAY WILL REMAIN SEASONABLY
MILD...WITH HIGHS GENERALLY IN THE 70S IN MOST LOCATIONS. BRIEFLY
LOOKING AHEAD...DRY WEATHER RETURNS TO THE FORECAST FOR MONDAY AND
TUESDAY BEFORE THE NEXT...STRONGER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM ARRIVES IN
THE REGION BETWEEN TUESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A
LOT OF FORECAST DETAILS YET TO BE WORKED OUT FOR NEXT WEEK...IT
APPEARS THAT PARTS OF THE REGION COULD SEE A RISK FOR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS AROUND THE WEDNESDAY OR WEDNESDAY NIGHT TIME FRAME.
