Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
601 AM CST Sat Feb 25 2017

In the wake of the now-departed storm that dumped several inches of
fresh snow especially north of Interstate 80...our local coverage
area of South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas started off
Saturday morning precipitation-free but cold. In fact...early
morning lows mainly between 4 and 13 degrees marked the coldest
temperatures observed in over two weeks. Looking ahead forecast-wise
through this weekend...dry weather is expected to continue
locally...and although it will be a FAR cry from the record-setting
warmth that defined the past few weeks...a modest little warming
trend will get underway nonetheless. Focusing first on today...skies
will vary somewhat...ranging anywhere from mostly cloudy to mostly
sunny at times. Afternoon highs will remain slightly below normal
for the date...ranging from the low to mid 30s in most of South
Central the low to mid 40s through much of North
Central Kansas. Sunday should feature mostly sunny skies...with high
temperatures roughly five degrees warmer than today...from the mid
30s north to upper 40s south. Turning to early next week...the
forecast becomes a bit trickier and more uncertain from Monday
through Tuesday night. At least for now...the daytime hours Monday
appear dry despite increasing cloud cover...with even milder highs
between the mid 40s and mid 50s. Monday night...chances
for perhaps a mix of rain and snow could affect primarily Nebraska
portions of our local area...with additional chances for primarily
snow then arriving for Tuesday night mainly south of the
Nebraska-Kansas border. At this time...none of these early-week
precipitation chances appear major...but stay tuned to the latest at least some minor travel issues cannot be ruled out.
