WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
215 PM CDT SAT MAR 21 2015

THE MAIN WEATHER STORY THIS WEEKEND IS CENTERED AROUND WELL-ABOVE
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND PREDOMINANTLY DRY CONDITIONS. IN FACT...THE
ONLY CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION THIS WEEKEND...AND ONLY A SLIGHT ONE AT
THAT...INVOLVES AN OUTSIDE CHANCE FOR A FEW SHOWERS AND WEAK
THUNDERSTORMS WITHIN COUNTIES MAINLY EAST OF HIGHWAY 281 LATE SUNDAY
AFTERNOON. FOCUSING ON TODAY IN MORE DETAIL...WIDESPREAD SUNSHINE
WILL BE IN FULL FORCE...AS AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES RANGE FROM
THE UPPER 60S NORTH AND EAST OF THE TRI CITIES...TO THE MID AND
POSSIBLY UPPER 70S IN SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA.
WIND SPEEDS WILL GENERALLY AVERAGE 10 TO 15 MPH WITH SOME SLIGHTLY
HIGHER GUSTS...AND MAINLY OUT OF AN EAST TO SOUTHEAST DIRECTION. LOW
TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO HOLD UP AROUND 40 DEGREES
ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. TURNING TO SUNDAY...OTHER THAN THE
AFOREMENTIONED SLIGHT CHANCE OF LATE AFTERNOON RAIN IN EASTERN
COUNTIES...THE VAST MAJORITY OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS SHOULD REMAIN DRY. OVERALL THOUGH...IT WILL BE A BIT
BREEZIER THAN TODAY...INITIALLY OUT OF THE SOUTH FOR MUCH OF THE DAY
AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT...BUT THEN TURNING NORTHERLY
BEHIND THIS FRONT DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. HIGH
TEMPERATURES ACROSS MOST OF THE LOCAL AREA SUNDAY SHOULD AGAIN CLIMB
WELL INTO THE 70S...WITH SOME LOW 80S VERY POSSIBLE IN SOUTHWESTERN
CITIES SUCH AS PHILLIPSBURG KANSAS. LOOKING AHEAD INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK...THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE FORECAST IS A SOMEWHAT DECENT...AND
MUCH-NEEDED CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY DURING THE
MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY TIME FRAME. ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE AREAS
THAT MISS OUT ON RAIN FROM THIS SYSTEM...BREEZY WESTERLY WIND ON
TUESDAY AFTERNOON COULD PROMOTE ANOTHER ROUND OF ENHANCED FIRE
DANGER. TEMPERATURE-WISE...SEASONABLY MILD HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 60S
ARE FORECAST THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK...BEFORE A POSSIBLE
COOL-DOWN INTO THE 50S OR EVEN 40S FOR THURSDAY.
