HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After a very warm or hot Saturday (depending on your taste), we’ll cool it back on Sunday just a bit. That said, Sunday will be the warmest day of the week ahead. Highs for most will still make it to the mid 70s to mid 80s with a breezy south winds of 10 to 20 mph. There will be a stalled out frontal boundary over our northwestern counties. So temperatures will be cooler in the far northwest. Along that front, some isolated thunderstorms may develop later in the day. More are expected to develop during the evening along the front. Along with that, a complex of showers and thunderstorms will move out of Colorado and Wyoming into Southern Nebraska and Northern Kansas. Severe weather will be possible, favoring the southwestern quadrant of the Local4 viewing area, which is basically areas from around the Tri-Cities and to the southwest. Large hail and strong winds gusts are the main threats. Some locally heavy rainfall will be possible. Some may pick up a solid one to two inches and possibly a little more. Lower amounts are expected to be in Northern Nebraska. Low temperatures Sunday night will drop to between the mid 40s northwest to the mid 50s southeast.

Some showers and isolated thunder will linger into Monday morning in parts of Central and Eastern Nebraska. As the morning goes on, much of the moisture clears out with only a slight chance the rest of the day in the far southeast. Some strong winds gusts out of the north are expected, which will draw in some much cooler air. Highs on Monday will top out in the upper 50s and low to mid 60s.

Tuesday will feature more sunshine than Monday. The day will start with lows in the mid 30s northwest to the mid 40s southeast. Highs on Tuesday will warm into low to mid 60s, which is just a little below average. Lows Tuesday night will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Some more showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday into Wednesday night. Highs on Wednesday will mostly be in the low to mid 60s, but if rain materializes, it may end out being a little cooler. Lows Wednesday night will be in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s.

Thursday and Friday will feature more sunshine and breezy conditions. Highs on Thursday will range from the lower 60s northeast to the upper 60s southwest. It’ll be a little warmer on Friday with highs in the mid to upper 60s and lower 70s. Another chance for rain and thunderstorms moves in Friday night into Saturday, ushering in the next cooldown. Highs on Saturday may mostly be in the 50s and lower 60s, but will depend on the timing of the rain chances.
