Storm Center Update Saturday PM – August 19


It’s been a sunny Saturday across KELOLAND. Afternoon temperatures climbed into the upper 70s and 80s in eastern KELOLAND while summer-like 90s were found in the west. The clear skies will last through the evening but the overnight may bring some isolated thundershowers for the southeast while the northern counties could see some light showers drift in from the west. Overnight lows will dip into the 60s.

Sunday’s thunderstorm forecast has shifted south. It seems the incoming cold front has been moving faster than original projected. The collision between a surface low pressure and the cold front, which was originally expected to happen right over KELOLAND, has now shifted to over Nebraska. What this means for KELOLAND is that the Sunday thunderstorm forecast has gone down although, some isolated showers or thundershowers are certainly possible along the front and southeast KELOLAND is still in the marginal category for severe weather late tomorrow. Sunday’s afternoon highs are still expected to reach the upper 70s to 80s.

Monday’s forecast hasn’t changed much. Lingering low pressure and stationary front over the Midwest still means we’ll carry thunderstorms chances through Monday and into at least early Tuesday. Monday’s highs will reach the 80s again.

The rest of the week looks calmer as that area of low pressure exits the Midwest. Highs next week will range from mid-70s to mid-80s. The west could daily, isolated, summer-time, popup storms beginning Wednesday.
