Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
256 PM CST Fri Jan 20 2017
This evening there could be off-and-on drizzle and eventually some
hit-and-miss rain showers. After sunset...there is a small chance
that some areas of rain could briefly change over to snow...but
little to no snow accumulation is expected...if it even occurs at
all. Late tonight...any precipitation will clear out of the
area...but there could be yet another round of fog to contend with.
Turning to Saturday...the highlight of the day will be a return to
mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the mid 40s to low 50s.
Dry and seasonably pleasant weather will then continue through
Monday. Looking ahead several days...the next potentially bigger
weather story arrives in the Central Plains early next week in the
form of a strong low pressure system. While the forecast still
carries plenty of uncertainty this far out...there is a potential
that parts of central and northern Nebraska could see several inches
of snow...with lesser snow potential extending farther southward
into northern Kansas. However...it will be a few more days until
confidence in the details of this storm system increases enough to
start talking about specifics...such as snow totals.
