Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
718 AM CDT Thu Apr 19 2018

During the overnight hours...clear skies and light breezes allowed
temperatures across most of south central Nebraska and north central
Kansas to drop into the mid to upper 20s...likely marking one of the
coldest mornings that will be observed the rest of this spring.
Turning to the forecast over the next three days or so...the big
stories include a return of rain chances Friday into Saturday...and
a continuation of at least slightly below normal temperatures by
mid-April standards. Going into greater detail...and starting with will be rather tranquil...with fairly light
breezes...mostly sunny skies...and high temperatures ranging from
the mid 50s to low 60s. It will remain dry tonight...with slightly
milder low temperatures mainly in the low to mid 30s. Things
gradually turn more active again Friday into Saturday as the center
of a large...slow-moving low pressure system passes by to our south.
While most rain chances during the day Friday will focus mainly in
counties west of the Highway 281 corridor...these precipitation
chances will increase and spread eastward to include more of the
local area Friday night into Saturday...before ending Saturday
afternoon or evening. Actual rainfall amounts are not looking very
heavy...generally less than one-quarter inch north and east of the
Nebraska Tri perhaps as much as around one-half inch
farther south and west around places such as Cozad Nebraska and
Plainville Kansas. Of course...locally higher amounts are always
possible...but these should be the exception. With increased clouds
and rain potential...high temperatures will be a bit cooler Friday
and especially Saturday...with most places topping out somewhere in
the 50s.
