The new month starts off with wintry weather easing us into the winter months
November 1, 2021 Morning Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - An upper level storm system is bringing rain and snow to the area this morning. While many areas have transitioned to snow, it still remains more rain in far southern and eastern parts of the Local4 viewing area. Much of the snow that has been on grassy and elevated surfaces. Many roads have been just wet. The chance of accumulating snow on roadways has been more common in far western areas. As we get into the daytime hours, any snow on roads will start to melt as some solar radiation gets through the clouds. As temperatures very slowly warm, snow will begin transitioning back to rain. At the same time, the intensity of precipitation will will lighten through the day. By the end of the day, much of what will be left is just some light rain in spots. Snowfall amounts look to be up to around an inch or so in the Tri-Cities (mainly on the grass). Totals of 1 to 3 inches will be possible in our western counties. Thankfully winds are remaining on the lighter side, so no blowing snow is expected. Temperatures will be slow to warm today with highs mostly in the mid to upper 30s and lower 40s. Some sun may come out at the end of the day in far Northern Nebraska.
Skies will stay mostly cloudy tonight with the best chance of some clearing in Northern and Eastern Nebraska. Meanwhile, precipitation will come to an end. Low temperatures tonight will range from around 20° north to the low/mid 30s in Southern Nebraska and Northern Kansas.
Tuesday into Tuesday night, another disturbance will bring a chance of some light rain, possibly mixed with snow in the southwestern and southern parts of the area. Precipitation should be fairly minimal and temperatures may stay elevated enough to keep most of it as liquid precipitation. Much of the rest of the area will still have quite a bit of cloud cover. Along with that, it could remain fairly drizzly in spots. High temperatures on Tuesday will be chilly in the low to mid 40s in most spots. There may be some upper 40s out east. Low temperatures tomorrow night will be in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s. Clouds will stick around for much of our Wednesday and it may still be a bit drizzly. Highs will be in the 40s...perhaps near 50° out west.
The rest of the week does see some improvement. Skies become mostly sunny on Thursday and highs will warm into the 50s and lower 60s (warmest west). Friday will be fairly sunny with highs into the mid 50s to mid 60s (warmest west). Winds will be a little more blustery. The first weekend is shaping up to be a good one with mostly sunny skies. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will warm into the low to mid 60s. There may be some upper 60s out west.
