WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 22, 2019
There will be an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors tonight, as our weather is expected to be rain free. Winds will taper off this evening becoming light and variable overnight with variable cloud cover.
Clouds will increase by Thursday afternoon as another storm system and associated warm front lifts north out of Kansas. Severe storms will develop in Central Kansas and track north with a warm front into Southern and Central Nebraska. A few storms could be severe in extreme Southeast Nebraska with hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes possible. Some areas could also see some heavy rain.
A broad upper level trough over the Southwest U.S. will influence our weather throughout the Memorial Weekend with thunderstorm chances Friday through next Tuesday. The more widespread coverage of storms appears to come Sunday night and again Monday afternoon into Monday night.
Temperatures will be warmer with upper 70s and lower 80s through the holiday. Stay on top of the latest forecast for changing weather conditions. Download the 1011 NOW weather app for forecasts, radars and updates from the 1011 weather team.
