Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
657 AM CDT Sun Apr 23 2017

It was another seasonably-chilly but dry night across the NWS
Hastings coverage area of South Central Nebraska and North Central
Kansas...with most places bottoming out somewhere in the 30s...and
some spots likely cold enough to see frost development. Turning to
the latest 7-day forecast...fairly little has changed since 24 hours generally we are still looking at a mild and mainly dry
couple of days...followed by several days of noticeably cooler times...wetter conditions. Taking a closer look at
today...the good news for many folks is that it will be a little
warmer than yesterday...with high temperatures reaching the low 70s.
However...this will come with the price of fairly strong south
winds...especially this afternoon...sustained at least 15 to 25 MPH
and gusting at least 30 to 35 MPH...if not a little higher. Starting
off the upcoming work week...Monday will actually be the
outright-warmest day of the week with highs in the mid 70s to near
80...but it will remain quite breezy. Most of Monday should be
dry...but do not be surprised to see a passing light shower or
sprinkle mainly during the morning. Beyond Monday and through the
rest of the week...things will most certainly turn cooler...with
highs only reaching the 50s across most of the local area most
days...and overnight lows averaging in the 30s to around 40. There
will also be at least two distinct opportunities for rain. The first
of these primary chances arrives between late Monday night and
Tuesday night...although much of this precipitation may be more
scattered versus widespread. Most of Wednesday into Wednesday night
is then looking dry before more...and probably even better rain
chances arrive from Thursday and lasting into this weekend. There
could be a few thunderstorms around as well from Friday into
Saturday...but at this time...the greatest threat for severe storms
appears to focus at least slightly south of our local area...more so
from central Kansas southward into Texas.
