Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
531 AM CST Sun Nov 27 2016

Although it remained dry overnight across the local area of South
Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas...there were already signs
of changes in the weather...as clouds were on the increase in
association with a warm front lifting north toward Nebraska out of
Kansas. All things considered...today will likely be the most active
weather day we will see for at least the next week. Various types of
weather are possible across parts of the local area...including some
chance of morning fog...increasing-chances for rain especially for
this afternoon...and even the possibility for a few
rare...late-November thunderstorms. On top of all of this...it will
become breezy to windy out of the south today...with sustained
speeds increasing to around 20 MPH in most local Nebraska
areas...and more-so 25 to 30 MPH in North Central Kansas. While not
everybody will see thunderstorms this afternoon...they are a
possibility...thanks to unusually high moisture levels for
late-November...along with the passage of a quick-moving...but
rather intense low pressure system. In fact...although not a sure
thing...there is even an outside chance that a few of these
afternoon storms could become severe. Although extensive cloud cover
will help to hold temps down somewhat...highs are still expected to
range from the mid 50s across most of South Central Nebraska...to
the low to mid 60s in North Central Kansas. Chances for rain and
thunderstorms should end by mid-evening...with dry weather returning
for the overnight hours. Briefly looking at the forecast for the
upcoming work week...it is looking mainly dry but colder. That being
said...do not be surprised to see a few sprinkles or snow flurries
on a few days...as the upper air pattern remains fairly active.
Temperature-wise...while most of the local area should climb to
around 50 on Monday...colder highs mainly between the mid 30s and
mid 40s will prevail Tuesday through Saturday...giving us our first
prolonged stretch of slightly below normal temperatures this fall.
