Be sure to catch the Beaver Moon lunar eclipse tonight
November 18, 2021 Overnight Forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Overnight, along with the increasing clouds, southerly winds will start to increase to around 10 to 20 mph. So while low temperatures will be down into the mid to upper 20s and lower 30s, those temperatures may rise a couple of degrees by sunrise Friday. Be sure to catch the Beaver Moon lunar eclipse starting just after midnight and lasting for almost 6 hours making it the longest eclipse this century. It will be a partial eclipse but should still be quite the spectacle as it turns red toward mid eclipse.
Friday will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies. Winds will continue to be breezy out of the south southwest. This will help temperatures rise into the 50s. Far western parts of the Local4 viewing area could see lower 60s. Winds will die down, but some clouds will be sticking around Friday night. Low temperatures by Saturday morning will be in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s. Saturday will be another partly to mostly cloudy day as a cold front dives south through the area. That will be the beginning of our next temperature drop. Later in the day, winds will take a northerly turn behind the front and will become breezy at 10 to 20 mph. We’ll see highs from the upper 40s north to the upper 50s south.
Sunday will be a bit chillier and the winds will be gusty out of the north northwest. Winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph are expected. The good news is that skies are expected to be mostly sunny. Highs will range from the upper 30s north to the lower 50s south. Monday will still feature mostly sunny skies and the winds won’t be as strong. Highs on Monday will range from the mid 40s northeast to around 60° west. Winds will turn breezy out of the south on Tuesday which will usher in the next warm-up. Highs on Tuesday will range from the mid 50s northeast to the mid 60s southwest. Then comes the next cool-down as temperatures on Wednesday start to drop. Highs on Wednesday will range from the upper 40s north to the upper 50s south. Thanksgiving Thursday comes in even colder with highs in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s. Beyond that, temperatures will start to come back up for the following weekend. As for precipitation chances, little to none is expected. This should mean travel conditions should be fine. The main concern is that fire danger will be at an elevated level most days that feature some stronger winds.
