Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
648 AM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 536 AM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

A pair of thunderstorm complexes merged into a larger MCS across
the area overnight bringing severe thunderstorms to a large
portion of the forecast area north of interstate 80. Expect this
activity to continue to slowly drift east during the mid morning
hours...with precip coming to and end over the next few hours.
Still seeing some hail and wind signatures...with heavy rain in
spots also causing some concerns.

Once this system tracks east...skies should clear across the area
as temperatures soar...with most locations reaching the upper 80s
to lower 90s by mid afternoon under full sunshine coupled with
warm air advection from the south. By early evening...expect
another round of thunderstorms to develop across the high
plains...but with the modifying environment...activity is not
expected to be as widespread or robust as this mornings
storms. That said...a severe storm or two cannot be completely
ruled out...especially across our north and west where the better
environment is expected to be.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 536 AM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

A more summerlike pattern is expected across the local area
through the extended periods with a prolonged period of above
normal temperatures and limited precipitation chances. With the
ridge amplifying aloft by the end of the week...temperatures
continue to creep upward...with mid 90s and heat indexes
approaching 100 expected for much of the local area to end the
week and start the weekend. The upper level ridge is expected to
flatten out some late in the weekend...allowing for some small
chances for thunderstorms to return to the region along with
seasonably warm temperatures to start the new work week.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 12Z Thursday)
Issued at 639 AM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019

Low clouds expected to scatter out this morning with a few mid
amd high clouds lingering the rest of the day. Winds should become
southerly as the outflow boundaries dissipate. Mid-day the winds
will gusts to around 20kts and will taper down this evening. A
decent LLJ sets up tonight so included LLWS in the TAFS. Later
this evening a few isolated TSRA could be possible as convection
is expected to move in from the west.
