HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - If you thought it was a bit more chilly today, your suspicions were confirmed by the 30 to 45 degree temperature difference from Tuesday afternoon. This evening, high pressure drifts into the region allowing the skies to clear, which in turn will send temperatures tumbling. Morning lows on Thursday will drop to as cold as near zero for the counties adjacent to the Kansas border, to -4 to -10 degrees from the Interstate corridor into north central areas. As far as sky conditions go, a swath of clouds are expected to drift from west to east across the forecast area with mostly sunny skies on either side.

Friday south winds will kick up a bit in the afternoon and despite increasing cloud cover, temperatures should reach seasonal levels in the low to mid 30s. Precipitation developing in the western part of the state is expected to split up, with areas of rain over the north and light snow southwest encountering dry air. It will be tough for the activitiy to move south, but we’re keeping a slight chance for mainly flurries over parts of the southwestern and south central part of the view area. Beyond Friday a minor warming trend is anticipated with upper 30s and lower 40s on Friday and upper 40s Sunday into Monday before another cold front Monday night cuts temperatures back into the 20s for next Tuesday.
