...A Major Shot of Cold Air Projected to Arrive Late Next Week...

The Central Plains has enjoyed a stretch of abnormally warm weather
the past few days. That will be a distant memory late next week as
the region is compensated by a stretch of unseasonably cold weather.

Some forecast guidance is indicating the possibility that high
temperatures could struggle to reach 40 degrees over much of north
central Kansas and south central Nebraska next Friday and
Saturday. In addition...widespread low temperatures below freezing
are likely both mornings. The coldest morning will be Saturday...
with lows in the 20s. This would end the growing season over
north central Kansas...where widespread freezing temperatures have
not occurred yet this fall.

This air will be cold enough that some areas could see the first
snowflakes of the season...but it is important to emphasize
that accumulating snow currently looks very unlikely.

Please continue to monitor the latest forecasts from the National
Weather Service in Hastings via our webpage or NOAA Weather Radio.
