Storm Center Update Sunday AM – August 20


Today’s thunderstorm forecast has shifted south when compared to the forecast from the week. It seems the incoming cold front has been moving faster than originally 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 chances have gone down although, some isolated showers or thundershowers are certainly possible along the front but it’s southeast KELOLAND that is still in the marginal category for severe weather tonight. Today’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.
