HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - We are struggling to come up with something to write about regarding our weather through the upcoming week. Skies will be sun-filled, temperatures will be right in the comfort zone, staying at or a little above the averages this time of year, and the wind will be hardly noticeable most days. The only fly in the ointment may be a possible elevated fire danger by the end of the week as winds pick up moderately but it’s not expected to reach critical levels. As for Tuesday, the morning will not be as crisp as it was Monday morning, though the day will start in the mid to upper 40s. Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 70s and lower 80s under sunny skies and northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
The rest of the week will be more of the same as temperatures will stay near or above the averages for late September which currently are in the mid 70s. Tuesday, Friday and Saturday look to be the warmer days as temperatures comfortably reach the upper 70s to low 80s. The coolest of the next 7 days will still be in the lower 70s.
As far as any rain chances, it looks to stay dry. A slow moving low pressure trough will attempt to push into the Central Plains late in the week, which could provide some spotty showers in the west and southwest, but Hurricane Ian is expected to impact the southeastern part of the U.S., which has a tendency to block or slow down the movement of any weather systems upstream. So for now the only day I’m posting a rain chance will be next Monday, and at this point is is only a small chance.
