NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
446 AM CDT SAT JUL 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...

A COOLER AND ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN IS IN STORE FOR WESTERN AND
NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA STARTING SUNDAY AND CONTINUING INTO THE END
OF THE WEEK. TODAY ISOLATED STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE FROM MID AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING. THEN A STRONG COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT AND WILL
BRING MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES AS WELL AS A GOOD CHANCE FOR
WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORMS...SOME OF WHICH MAY PRODUCE HEAVY
RAINFALL. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES RETURN AGAIN FOR MID WEEK AND INTO
THE WEEKEND.

TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR AVERAGE TODAY BUT WELL ABOVE AVERAGE FOR
SUNDAY. THEN...AFTER THE PASSAGE OF THE STRONG COLD FRONT...COOLER
THAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK.
