HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Today will be a typical early spring day. Southern areas will be cooler, but northern areas will be a bit milder than yesterday’s cold temperatures. Our North Central communities are dealing with some areas of fog this morning. Meanwhile, some mixed precipitation will move in to those areas from the southwest later today. It will become mostly rain by later in the afternoon. The rest of the area will have mostly cloudy skies. Winds might be a bit breezy over Southeast Nebraska. Highs temperatures today will range from the mid 40s north to the mid 50s south and west. Overnight conditions will remain partly cloudy as lows drop back to between the mid 20s north west to the upper 30s southeast.

Tomorrow will be a partly to mostly cloudy day with perhaps some sprinkles or flurries developing into the afternoon. It’ll be a colder day way up north with highs in the 30s. The rest of us will see highs from the mid 40s north to the mid 50s south. Moisture chances will improve into Wednesday night and rain and snow will be possible. The best chance of snow will be possible in northern parts of the area. Some accumulating snow will be possible through early Thursday morning. Amounts up to around 2 inches will be possible. Meanwhile, from around the Tri-Cities and more toward the southeast and east from there, there could be some thunder with the scattered rain showers. Low temperatures tomorrow night will range from the lower 20s northwest to the lower 30s southeast.

Look for partly to mostly cloudy skies on Thursday. Much of the day will likely be dry. Highs will range from the upper 30s northeast to the mid 50s southwest. Friday might be just a bit better with a little more sunshine. Highs will mostly be in the 50s across the area. Chances for rain, and possibly some snow will return Friday night into Saturday. On Saturday, it will start to get chillier to the north and west with highs in the 40s. It’ll still get to the 50s for a large part of the area. That chillier air will spread into the rest of the area into Sunday and Monday. There will be a few more chances for rain and snow Sunday and Monday. The snow would be more likely the farther west and northwest you go as highs on Sunday will range from the mid 30s west to the lower 50s east. Highs on Monday will mostly be in the 40s. Beyond Monday, there are trends toward some drier air and an eventual warm-up later in the week.
