HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Starting off this week of Thanksgiving will be a rather chilly Monday morning, with lows expected to drop to the mid 20s. Clouds which moved in overnight will persist for the greater eastern chunk of the state, with a bit of sunshine helping temps in the west and Panhandle reach the 50s, while the majority will see 40s. Late morning, there may be some light showers in Southeastern Nebraska moving into Iowa. The main rain will develop to the west and sandhills later at night.

Tuesday after midnight, rain will begin intermittently, and will spread across most of the state. There is a chance for snow in Western Nebraska for light accumulations, and flurries reaching the central counties possible, but unlikely any significant accumulations. The Tri-Cities will see mostly just rain. As the front pushes through, winds will shift more from the north. Later in the afternoon, there could be a chance for thunderstorms in Eastern Nebraska. Wrapping moisture into the cold air may bring flurries to Central Nebraska at this point.

Into Wednesday, clouds should be gone after Tuesday evening, and highs will be mostly in the upper 40s and lower 50s, with a west to northwesterly breeze. Sunny skies will persist through the end of the week, with highs around 50 degrees and calm weather.
