Cooling down to finish week and start weekend, but mainly dry
Warming trend starts again Sunday
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - hursday was our last warm and mostly sunny day as colder air is on our doorstep. A front will cross Western and Central NE from Fiday morning into the evening hours and usher in cooler air, along with clouds and a slight chance of rain/snow showers. Cool air will be over us Saturday, but we are back to sunshine. Then another warming trend starts Sunday along with another dry stretch that could last through next week.
Temperatures cool down as a cold front moves through Friday. Morning highs will be near 40, with temps cooling through the 30s by afternoon. There will be just a 30% chance of rain/snow showers in the Panhandle in the morning hours, and a 20 % chance in Central NE by afternoon. But most will be cloudy and dry to finish the workweek. High pressure is back for Saturday, giving us sunshine, but we are on its cool side with northerly winds and highs only in the 30s across the region.
A major snowstorm will miss us to the east, with portions of the Northern Plains and the Western Midwest picking up moderate to heavy smounts of snow. Our NW wind for Friday/Saturday will keep us mainly dry for this timeframe as the snow moves east.
Then this dry and mild pattern rolls on for the Sunday through Tuesday timeframe. Highs will rise back through the 40s to the mid-50s by this time next week. We will also have partly to mostly sunny skies. We will remain dry for the Wednesday and Thursday timeframe but cold front will cool highs back into the 30s and 40s.
