Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
557 AM CDT Wed Oct 18 2017

Early Wednesday morning...temperatures across our local area of
South Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas were running a bit
milder than yesterday...with actual lows likely bottoming out in the
mid to upper 40s most places. Looking ahead forecast-wise...we have
three more days of well-above average warmth and dry weather in
store...before an upper level disturbance and passing cold front
brings a slight cool-down for the weekend...and at least low chances
for showers and thunderstorms from Friday night into Saturday.
However...as it currently stands...our local area probably will not
see much rain...with much better chances instead focusing off to our
east and south...especially within parts of Iowa...southern and
eastern Kansas...and Oklahoma. Backing up and focusing on today...it
will be a bit breezier than yesterday...especially north and west of
the Tri Cities...where northerly gusts to around 25 MPH are likely
behind a weak cold front invading the area. This front will result
in a touch of temperature variation today...with highs ranging from
the low 70s in northern places such as Ord Nebraska...to around 80
in north central Kansas. Thursday is probably the overall
most-tranquil day of the next several...with breezes only 5 to 15
MPH from the south and high temperatures mainly mid to upper 70s.
Things start to turn a bit more active on Friday...as although the
daytime hours should remain dry...it will be noticeably windier as
sustained southerly speeds average 20 to 30 MPH and gust 30 to 40
MPH...with the overall highest speeds focused in north central
Kansas.
