Getting into some more specifics...and starting with today...this should actually be the warmest of the next several days...with highs reaching the upper 80s to low 90s in most local Nebraska counties...and the mid to upper 90s in Kansas. Although most places should stay dry...there is a small chance of thunderstorms mainly near and south of the Nebraska-Kansas border...and a severe storm or two cannot be ruled out. Then...from Friday through Sunday daytime...although it may not be truly guaranteed dry the entire time...chances are low enough that the official forecast reads as dry for now. This dry forecast...in tandem with high temperatures ranging from the mid 80s to mid 90s...should promote a seasonably-pleasant summer weekend for most folks. Just as the weekend draws to a close...our next halfway decent chance for showers and thunderstorms arrives for Sunday night into the day Monday...but for now these chances are no higher than 40 to 50 percent in most locations. Temperature-wise...next week from Monday onward actually looks to average a bit cooler-than-normal...with high only reaching the low to mid 80s most days. $$ AWUS83 KGID 191032 CCA RWSGID KSZ005>007-017>019-NEZ039>041-046>049-060>064-072>077-082>087- 192230- Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains...Corected National Weather Service Hastings NE 518 AM CDT Thu Jul 19 2018 Looking at the 5-day forecast as a whole for south central Nebraska and north central Kansas...it would be best described as mostly dry...and with generally near-normal temperatures for mid to late-July.
