The wet and cooler weather will be temporary as dry and warmer weather return soon
September 22, 2023 Morning Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - For the most part showers and thunderstorms are now out of the area. There are some areas of clouds and even some fog that remain. Some do have sunshine, mainly in parts of Central Nebraska and North Central Kansas. There also some foggy areas. As the day goes on, many will see clouds thicken up. Areas of some drizzle and even a few showers will be possible with the chance a little better in the afternoon and into the evening. The chance of thunderstorms is looking fairly slim for most of the area. With the clouds around, temperatures will be cooler for most on this final day of summer. There may be a little more sun in the south in the afternoon. Highs will range from the upper 60s north to the lower 80s in the south. Winds will be slightly breezy out of the east southeast at 5 to 15 mph with gusts to 20+ mph. Overnight, a cold front will move into Western Nebraska around midnight and then into Central Nebraska by early Saturday morning. Along with the front will come a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The chance will shift from central into eastern areas going through the morning. The greatest chance of stronger storms will be in North Central to Northeast Nebraska with lower chances as you go south. Ahead of the front, winds will be out of the south southeast. Behind the front, winds will shift out of the northwest and will be quite breezy at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. While there could be some severe storms over Eastern Nebraska Saturday afternoon, the chance may be better after the storms shift into Iowa. So at this point, I’m not terribly concerned about severe weather for the Husker game in the afternoon. But there could still be some rain. Behind the storms, sunshine will be coming out with more sun for a longer period of the day the farther west you go. High temperatures on Saturday will range from around 70° northwest to the lower 80s in the south and east. Saturday night, skies will completely clear up and winds will die down. This will lead to a chillier night with lows from the mid 40s west to the mid 50s east.
The rest of the forecast looks fairly quiet with quite a bit of sunshine Sunday through most of next week. Highs Sunday and Monday will be more in the lower 70s to the lower 80s, with the warmest temperatures in the southwest. But later in the week, highs will range from the upper 70s to the upper 80s. The warmest temperatures will continue to be in the southwest. The final week of September will end up above average.
