HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Mid to late September usually conjures up thoughts of pulling out the fleece pullovers and lighting up the fire pit for the first time, but that was likely furthest from your mind today. Certainly not when most of the area was dealing with high 90 and 100 degree weather. It was a record breaking day for many towns. It was the second latest 100 degree reading for Grand Island today and for Lincoln it was the first back to back 100 degree days ever for the month of September.

That’s all about to change....rather rapidly. A cold front is imperceptibly settling south across Nebraska this evening with little fanfare. But with the colder air expected to rush in tonight into tomorrow, there will be a temperature swing of between 30 to 40 degrees cooler Wednesday into Thursday from Tuesday’s highs. Temperatures on Wednesday will be steady to falling with readings in the lower 60s to lower 70s in the far southeast part of the state.
