WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
720 AM CDT THU APR 17 2014

THE WAY THINGS ARE LOOKING...TODAY WILL LIKELY BE THE COOLEST DAY
SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS WILL SEE FOR THE
FORESEEABLE FUTURE...AS THE MAJORITY OF THE NEXT WEEK SHOULD FEATURE
PREVAILING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. ALTHOUGH IT WILL REMAIN DRY
TODAY...THINGS WILL START OUT QUITE CLOUDY BEFORE A RETURN TO MORE
SUNSHINE AS THE DAY WEARS ON. SUSTAINED BREEZES THROUGH MOST OF THE
DAY WILL AVERAGE AROUND 10 MPH...AS THE DIRECTION GRADUALLY SWITCHES
FROM NORTHERLY TO SOUTHEASTERLY. HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON
ARE ONLY FORECAST TO CLIMB SOMEWHERE IN THE 50S ACROSS THE LOCAL
AREA. TURNING TO FRIDAY...A MUCH WARMER DAY IS EXPECTED...BUT IT
WILL COME WITH THE PRICE OF FAIRLY STRONG WINDS. SUSTAINED SOUTH
WINDS ON FRIDAY WILL AVERAGE AROUND 25 MPH...WITH GUSTS TO AROUND 35
MPH FOR MOST OF THE DAY...BUT THESE WINDS WILL HELP BOOST HIGH
TEMPERATURES BACK UP INTO THE 70 TO 75 DEGREE RANGE. LOOKING AHEAD
TO THIS WEEKEND...THE MAIN STORY IS THAT THERE WILL BE INCREASING
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MUCH OF THE LOCAL
AREA...ESPECIALLY FROM LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY
NIGHT...BUT POSSIBLY LINGERING INTO EASTER SUNDAY AS WELL. SOME
THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING COULD BE ON THE
STRONG SIDE...CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SOME HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS. IT IS
A BIT TOO SOON TO REALLY PINPOINT RAIN CHANCES FOR SUNDAY...BUT EVEN
IF IT DOES RAIN DURING THE DAY...IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY LOOK LIKE
AN EASTER WASHOUT. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY ARE FORECAST TO
CLIMB INTO THE 70S IN MOST AREAS...WITH UPPER 60S MORE PREVALENT FOR
SUNDAY.
