Hotter Temperatures Expected This Weekend

 A large dome of high pressure aloft will be positioned across the Four Corners region into the weekend. Western and North Central Nebraska will be under the influence of northwesterly wind flow aloft.  Deepening surface low pressure is expected to develop from the central Dakotas, into northwest Nebraska by noon Saturday. Temperatures are expected to steadily increase on Saturday, ahead of an approaching upper trough of low pressure which will swing across the northern Rockies. An approaching cool front will extend from southeastern South Dakota, into northeastern Colorado late Saturday.  Frontal passage is anticipated on Saturday night, providing the next best  chance of stronger convective type precipitation for the region. Below are images showing the expected frontal and pressure patterns, plus maximum temperature forecasts for Friday through next Monday.
