WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
1110 AM CST THU DEC 11 2014

LATE THURSDAY MORNING...GRAY...GLOOMY WEATHER CONDITIONS WERE FIRMLY
IN PLACE ACROSS THE ENTIRE LOCAL AREA OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...WHILE NOT FAR TO THE WEST...MUCH OF WESTERN
NEBRASKA AND FAR WESTERN KANSAS BASKED UNDER PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE. FOR
THE AFTERNOON HOURS...CERTAINLY THE MAJORITY OF THE LOCAL AREA IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN SOCKED UNDER OVERCAST SKIES AS TEMPERATURES RISE
TO ONLY AROUND 40 DEGREES AT BEST...ALTHOUGH MAYBE A FEW WESTERN
COMMUNITIES SUCH AS GOTHENBURG AND CAMBRIDGE NEBRASKA POSSIBLY
CATCHING A BRIEF PERIOD OF SUNSHINE BEFORE LOW CLOUDS ROLL BACK IN
THIS EVENING. HEADING INTO TONIGHT...THE BIG WEATHER STORY ACROSS
THE AREA WILL LIKELY BE FOG. ALTHOUGH NOT NECESSARILY ALL OF SOUTH
CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS WILL SEE DENSE FOG...A
GOOD CHUNK OF THE AREA VERY WELL COULD...SO FOLKS SHOULD BE PREPARED
FOR A POTENTIALLY FOGGY COMMUTE ON FRIDAY MORNING. AT LEAST
TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL REMAIN FAIRLY MILD FOR THIS OF
YEAR...HOLDING UP SOMEWHERE IN THE 30S. LOOKING AHEAD...THE FRIDAY
AND SATURDAY TIME FRAME IS A GOOD NEWS...BAD NEWS STORY IN SOME
WAYS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IT WILL REMAIN RATHER MILD...WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES ON BOTH DAYS FORECAST TO CLIMB TO AROUND 50 DEGREES OR
POSSIBLY A LITTLE HIGHER...AND OVERNIGHT LOWS HOLDING UP INTO THE
40S. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT GLOOMY...AND AT-TIMES FOGGY AND DRIZZLY
WEATHER WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE AREA. LOOKING FARTHER AHEAD...A
STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO AFFECT THE CENTRAL PLAINS
DURING THE SUNDAY-MONDAY TIME FRAME...POSSIBLY RESULTING IN SOME
ACCUMULATING SNOW BETWEEN SUNDAY EVENING AND MONDAY EVENING.
HOWEVER...IT IS STILL TOO EARLY TO GET TOO EXCITED OR TOO CONCERNED
OVER THIS STORM...AS FORECAST MODELS ARE STILL SHOWING INCONSISTENT
SIGNALS REGARDING WHETHER THIS WILL BE ONLY A LIGHT SNOW EVENT...OR
POSSIBLY A MORE IMPACTFUL ONE WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERAL INCHES.
STAY TUNED...AS THE FIRST STAB AT SNOWFALL FORECASTS WILL COME OUT
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. ON A POSITIVE NOTE...PARTS OF THE AREA COULD
SEE A PRETTY DECENT RAINFALL PRIOR TO THE ONSET OF ANY
SNOW...STEMMING THE TIDE OF WHAT HAS BEEN A RATHER DRY LATE-FALL
SEASON.
