HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After we saw afternoon high temperatures across the area reach the upper 70s and lower 80s. Skies will be mostly clear overnight with some more clouds moving in for tomorrow morning. Could see patchy dense fog tomorrow morning as we have mostly clear skies and light winds after midnight. Look for lows in the upper 40s and low to mid 50s.

Friday will start off partly cloudy, but become mostly sunny, similar to Thursday. It’ll be a warmer day as highs reach the low to mid 80s in most locations. Winds might get a bit breezy in the east and the west at 10 to 15 mph. They will be a bit lighter near the Tri-Cities. Overnight, clouds will be on the increase as skies become mostly cloudy on Saturday. It’ll be relatively mild with lows in the 50s and lower 60s.

With partly to mostly cloudy skies on Saturday, it’ll still be a warm one as a cold front slowly starts to push southeastward through the area. That front will continue to make its way through the area Saturday night. Very little if any moisture is expected with this front, but some sprinkles aren’t out of the question. We’ll sneak in one more warm day on Saturday with highs ranging from the upper 70s in the northwest to around 90° in the southeast.

Sunday will be a cooler and breezy day with highs in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s. Skies look to be partly sunny. a disturbance will approach from the southwest Sunday night into Monday morning. Most forecast models continue to trend to the southeast with the chance for rain, so this would put the best chance southeast of the Tri-Cities. But not all models do. Some do have the rain passing right over the heart of the area. So for now, I’ll continue to include a slight chance for rain later Sunday night into Monday morning. Monday will be a cooler day with the extra clouds around. Highs iwll range from the mid 60s to the lower 70s with the warmest temperatures to the west...away from the chance for rain.

Tuesday will be a partly cloudy and warmer day along with breezy winds. This is ahead of an approaching strong low pressure system that will move northeast out of the Southwest U.S. As of now, the low looks like it will pass to the west and north of our area. This would keep us in the warm sector for Tuesday. Highs will be cool in Western Nebraska. Most of the Local4 viewing area will warm into the upper 60s and low to mid 70s. Showers and thunderstorms could form later Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night along a cold front as it pushes through. Widespread rain and some severe weather will be possible. The biggest question right now is the timing of this system. Some models hold off on this front until Wednesday, which would hold the better chance for rain and thunderstorms until Wednesday. This delay would mean a better chance for strong thunderstorms on Wednesday. Once this system moves through, we’ll see strong winds and cooler temperatures on the back side. For now, we’ll shoot for highs in the 60s on Wednesday. There could be some colder air in the Panhandle.
