HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - As mild as it’s been this past week, lest you’ve forgotten that it’s January, Wednesday’s weather will certainly remind you. Cold air will settle south late Tuesday night with wind picking up in the Tri-Cities area through the evening. By morning temperatures will range from the single digits in the north to the teens in the south. Afternoon temperatures will climb no higher then the teens to near 20 degrees with wind chills from 5 to 10 below in the northern counties. In addition to the colder conditions, an upper level disturbance will drop south bringing snow chance to Western Nebraska/Kansas and Colorado. The better snow chances will be mainly west of highway 83 from North Platte through the Panhandle, including the Imperial, Mccook areas...but also a slight chance can’t be ruled out for the Lexington and Holdrege areas with flurries as far east as the Tri-Cities, provided it can overcome the drier air that’s in place.

Thursday will continue to be cold with subzero lows in the morning and high temperatures in the 20s in the afternoon. Winds, however will switch to the south hinting at a return to at least more seasonal temperatures, which means in the low 30s on Friday and the upper 30s Saturday. From there another rebound to milder weather with 40s Sunday and Monday. There is a chance for snow in northern and central parts of the state Friday into Friday evening, but for now we’re going with just slight chances for the Tri-Cities.
