HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - A chilly night is expected tonight, but winds will increase out of the south bringing warmer temperatures to the region the next couple of days. Temperatures tonight may bottom out earlier in the overnight hours before southern winds pick up and turn gusty, holding temperatures steady and even elevating overnight readings slightly before morning.

It will be mostly sunny, Thursday with winds a little stronger in the southeast part of the Local 4 area where gusts could range from 35 to 40 mph. Afternoon highs will climb into the low to mid 50s.


Friday a cold front will promote a wind switch from southerly to northwesterly by the evening hours. Forecast models are speeding up the progress of the front, having it draped just to the north of the Tri-Cities by midday then bringing it through by late afternoon. Highs should again make it into the low to mid 50s with cooler readings in the 30s and 40s in the northern third of the state.

The timing of a passing cold front will determine afternoon highs.

Precipitation is expected to stay north of Nebraska. With the passage of the front, winds will again accelerate to gusts in the 40+ mph range. Saturday will cut back into the mid to upper 30s then push into the 40s on Sunday with the entire weekend staying dry. Some quick hitting disturbances could bring a chance for precipitation early next week but specifics remain undecided at this time, so we’re keeping the chances small for now.
