HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Temperatures will come down a little on Thursday, but with lighter winds out of the north northwest at 5 to 15 mph and mostly sunny skies, it will still be pretty decent. Highs on Thursday will range from the lower 40s north to the lower 50s south. We’ll see more clouds and cooler temperatures on Friday. Highs will mostly be in the 30s with a few lower 40s in the southwest. There may be a few flurries, maybe even some light snow toward the Sandhills.

We’ll have to watch the weekend as plans could be impacted by at least some wintry precipitation. At this point, it does not look like a major winter weather event. Timing and types of precipitation are still quite a bit uncertain this far out, but there could be some minor impacts. The greatest chance of snow currently resides in Northern Nebraska on Saturday. Some may see a mix of snow with freezing rain, sleet, or rain. The chance for mixed precipitation will be best in the southeast. Meanwhile, temperatures will remain near or a little bit below average in the 30s. On Sunday, I only expect some leftover light snow to linger in the morning. Monday, the chance for precipitation is pretty low. Highs will remain mostly in the low to mid 30s. Tuesday gets a little chillier and there may be a little more light snow that returns to the area. By later next week, temperatures may start to warm up back to a little above average.
