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

A few hours before sunrise on this Sunday morning...crystal clear
skies dominated our local area of South Central Nebraska and North
Central Kansas...and winds had dropped off considerably since
Saturday evening. As a result...low temperatures this morning could
drop a touch lower than earlier expected...with low to mid 30s
relatively common...and at least some patchy frost cannot be ruled
out. Looking ahead forecast-wise...the overall expectations of the
upcoming week remain very consistent with recent forecasts. Quite
simply...this means we continue to have 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
with gusts to at least 20 MPH...including today...Monday and
probably Friday.
