Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
722 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Looking ahead forecast-wise...truly hot weather remains the number
one story for really just one more day...and in fact Friday is
looking to rival Wednesday for being the overall most oppressive day
of the week. More specifically...actual highs Friday are expected to
range from 96 to 105 degrees across most of the local area...with
peak afternoon heat index readings more so 102 to 107. Not
surprisingly...the entire NWS Hastings coverage area remains under
either an Excessive Heat Warning or Heat Advisory through early
Friday evening.  For those tiring of the excessive heat and humidity
lately...there is some good news on the long as you
keep your expectations in check. While the weather will not be
turning refreshingly-cool by any least a modest
improvement will take place over the weekend into early next week.
More specifically...high temperatures Saturday will ease down to
around 90 degrees in most of the local Nebraska area...but still
reach the mid to upper 90s in North Central Kansas. Then...our
entire coverage area should top out no higher than the upper 80s to
lower 90s Sunday through Tuesday...which is actually right on par
with average conditions for this time of year. So again...not a big
cool-down...but at least an improvement.  As for rain chances over
the next few days...while they are not overly high...there is at
least a chance of thunderstorms late Friday afternoon into Friday
night mainly north of Interstate 80...and then spreading southward
across the remainder of the local area Saturday into Saturday night.
There is a Marginal Risk that a few of these storms could become
severe Friday into Saturday...capable of producing large hail and/or
damaging winds.
