NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Skies will become sunny to mostly sunny as we head into the day on Tuesday as the front shifts to the east out of the area. Hazy sunshine is expected again as wildfire smoke will lead to a rather opaque sky for most of us. While it should be mainly dry on Tuesday there is a chance for an isolated storm or two in the southeastern parts of the coverage area as the front stalls out across southeastern and south central Nebraska.

Behind the front, temperatures will be a bit cooler on Tuesday but it still will be quite hot across the area. After morning lows ranging from the mid-50s to mid-60s, afternoon highs will be in the lower to middle 90s across western Nebraska.

The extended forecast will keep the heat around for the day on Wednesday and Thursday with a stronger cold front dropping through the state Thursday and into Friday which will cool temperatures back into the 80s for Friday and into the upcoming weekend. Rain chances are scattered over the next 7 days with some isolated storms possible into Monday evening. Our next opportunity for some moisture likely doesn’t arrive until Thursday night and into the day on Friday as that cold front sweeps through the state. Some off and on rain chances are expected this weekend as well as northwest flow aloft sets up over the area, bringing some weak disturbances through the area.

Hot weather will hang around for the next few days with cooler weather expected by late this...
