Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
647 AM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

Early on this Sunday morning... the combination of crystal clear
skies and fairly light breezes promoted
slightly-colder-than-expected low temperatures across much of our
local area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas...with
mid 30s common...and perhaps even some patchy frost here or there.
Looking ahead forecast-wise...the overall expectations of the
upcoming week remain very consistent with recent forecasts. Quite
simply...this means we continue having high confidence in a
multiple-day streak of dry and seasonably-mild weather. In
fact...the latest official 7-day forecast valid through Saturday
afternoon carries no rain mention whatsoever...although there are
hints that perhaps some small rain chances could enter the picture
just beyond that. will be the coolest of
the next several days...but should still top out between 60 and 65
degrees...which is not that far from mid-October normals. Tonight
will be another crisp one...with lows dropping well into the 30s
again...and perhaps some spots mainly north and west of the Tri
Cities flirting with the freezing mark. Anybody who still has
concerns about their sensitive outdoor vegetation may want to take
precautions...just in case. From Monday onward...the rest of the
week will be warmer...with no additional concerns for near-freezing
temperatures. In fact...every day between Monday and Saturday looks
to feature highs in the 70s...or roughly 5 to 10 degrees above
normal. Although the upcoming week does not look
overly-windy...there will surely be a few somewhat breezy afternoons
featuring gusts to at least 20 MPH...including today...Monday and
probably Friday.
