Weather Summary for Western and North Central Nebraska
National Weather Service North Platte NE
813 PM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017 /713 PM MDT Fri Sep 22 2017/

Today, a frontal boundary draped across the region made for a
large difference in temperatures from north to south. Highs only
reached the mid 70s across North Nebraska while record highs were
observed across Central and Southwest Nebraska where values
reached the mid to upper 90s. Partly cloudy skies gave way to
thunderstorm development by late afternoon.

Tonight, ongoing widely scattered thunderstorms across the
eastern Sandhills are pushing north and east and will continue to
do so through early Saturday morning. A few storms may contain
brief 40 mph gusts and hourly rain near a quarter of an inch.
Dangerous lightning will be possible with any thunderstorm this
evening. Another large contrast in morning low temperatures is
expected with low 40s in the Panhandle to the mid 60s in Central
Nebraska where cloud cover is expected to remain the thickest.
Rain chances will increase through the day on Saturday.
