Hit and miss showers Wednesday...
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - The middle part of the week will see more dry hours than wet but the opportunity for brief showers or an isolated rumble of thunder is still in play for Wednesday. Low pressure tracking into Northern Nebraska will drag a cold front through the region, providing a chance of showers migrating through the Sandhills early in the day. Weak instability in the afternoon may produce some additonal hit and miss showers or an isolated thunderstorm during the late afternoon into the evening hours.
Afternoon highs will climb into the mid to upper 60s with northwest winds behind the front producing a few gusts to 30 mph.
High pressure will build in Thursday and Friday allowing for mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. Highs during this period will warm into the upper 60s to mid 70s. Unfortunately Mother Nature may not be to lenient for Mother’s Day celebrations over the weekend. An upper level trough will bring clouds and rain chances through the weekend into early next week, to what degree is yet to be determined.
Forecast models have been flip flopping on how to handle this feature so it’s difficult to tell if the showers will quickly move through or if it will the system will be slower and thus wetter. For now, whatever plans you may have, allow for some wet weather to come into play.
