Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
701 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

Focusing first on short term weather highlights across the local
South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas area...the main
story these next two days will be a continuation of seasonably mild
and mostly sunny conditions...with high temperatures both today and
Monday reaching well into the 40s to lower 50s range. Today...the
one possible exception to mostly sunny conditions will be near the
extreme eastern edges of our local area near the Highway 81
corridor...where a batch of low clouds over eastern Nebraska could
move in for a part of the day. Today will also be breezier than
yesterday...with northwest winds averaging 15 to 20 MPH much of the
time and gusting to around 25 MPH. Looking beyond
probably have been hearing for days now about a possible snow event
during the Tuesday through Wednesday time frame. While snow is still
a possibility...there remains considerable uncertainty in the
details. While most computer models suggest that this will be a
fairly minor event with only 1 to 2 inches at most...there is still
a small chance that some places could see more than
this...especially within Nebraska counties north of Interstate 80.
In addition to any possible snow Tuesday into Wednesday...confidence
is high that northwest winds will become fairly strong...with
frequent gusts to at least 30 MPH. Beyond looks
precipitation-free through the rest of the upcoming week...although
it will turn colder with high temperatures mainly only in the 30s.
