Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
616 AM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Early on this Sunday morning...temperatures were averaging at least
10 to 15 degrees milder than 24 hours ago across our local coverage
area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas...with most
places holding somewhere in the 20s. Looking ahead
forecast-wise...by normal February standards...today will be
seasonably-pleasant. Under widespread sunshine and in the presence
of fairly light westerly breezes only around 10 MPH...high
temperatures this afternoon will reach the mid 40s in most of South
Central Nebraska...and the upper 40s to around 50 in North Central
Kansas. Turning to Monday...the majority of the local area should
remain dry...but clouds will be on the increase and a few sprinkles
or spits of drizzle probably cannot be ruled out...especially near
the Highway 81 corridor. Thanks to southerly breezes...temperatures
should continue a small warming trend...with highs ranging from 45
to 55 degrees across the area. Monday night...patchy fog could
affect parts of the area...and there is also an outside chance at a
light wintry mix of precipitation mainly north of Nebraska Highway
92...with little...if any accumulation expected. On Tuesday...winds
turn northerly behind a passing cold front...although most areas
should remain dry with highs again between the mid 40s and mid 50s.
By later in the day Tuesday into Tuesday night...chances for
rain-turning-to-snow will be on the increase...especially in North
Central Kansas...with lesser chances north of the state line over
Nebraska. At this time...any snow accumulation appears pretty
minimal...but there is still a little forecast uncertainty here...so
please keep up to latest over the next few days. Finally...for those
longing for some noticeably warmer weather to make a return...it
currently appears that highs should make it into the 60s next
weekend.
