Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
632 AM CDT Sat Apr 22 2017

Shortly before sunrise on this Saturday morning...the entire NWS
Hastings coverage area of South Central Nebraska and North Central
Kansas reported dry conditions under a variable mix of clearing and
lingering high clouds. Early morning temperatures were mainly in the
upper 30s...although some colder spots were noted here or
there...including Lexington airport which had fallen to 32 degrees.
Turning to the latest 7-day forecast...it consists of basically two
different weather patterns. Breaking it down...these next three days
are looking dry with gradually warming temperatures. Then...the
following four days between Tuesday and Friday of next week are
looking cooler and more unsettled...with at least a few separate
chances for halfway decent rainfall. Focusing first on the shorter
term expectations...today will feature decent weather for
late-April...with fairly light breezes...decreasing clouds and high
temperatures mainly in the mid 60s. Tonight...lows in the mid to
upper 30s could support at least patchy frost in various
locations...but we are not talking a killing freeze by any means.
Sunday will bring a slight boost in temperatures with highs into the
70s...but it will come with the price of fairly strong south
winds...sustained at 20 to 25 MPH with higher gusts. It will remain
breezy Monday...but with even warmer temperatures that could push 80
especially in North Central Kansas. For those wanting rain...you
will want to pay close attention to the forecast for Tuesday through
Friday...as there should be at least a few chances. The first chance
mainly arrives Tuesday into Tuesday night...but will probably not
feature very heavy amounts. The second...and potentially more
significant rain event...then looks to arrive during the Thursday
through Friday time frame. There could be a few thunderstorms around
as well...but at this time...the greatest threat for severe storms
appears to focus south of our local area...more so into southern
Kansas and Oklahoma.
