HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After starting off with sunny skies this morning, the high and mid-level clouds streamed on in from the west as we have a trough beginning to enter the the region from the west. Skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy overnight with lows in the low 20s west to mid 30s east. Winds will be on the breezy side out of the SSE between 10 and 20 mph.

Monday will start off mostly cloudy but become mostly sunny in the late afternoon as that trough exits the region. There is the potential for seeing areas of patchy fog and drizzle, mainly east of Highway 81. With temperatures expected above freezing by mid morning, not expecting any freezing drizzle. There will be a brief lull in the winds as well tomorrow morning with the passing of the trough, but becoming breezy behind the trough with NW winds 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 20 mph at times. The winds will pick up as we head into Monday night out of the northwest at 12 to 18 mph with gusts to 30 mph at times. The winds back off though as we head toward sunrise on Tuesday. Plenty more sunshine and less wind on Tuesday. High temperatures upper 30s north to upper 40s south.

The warmer weather continues on into Wednesday with highs in the mid-upper 40s except cooler to the north in the mid-upper 30s. The temperatures have a bit of a hick-up as we end the work week. A somewhat strong low pressure system will move to our south and east. Though most of us will only have a slim chance of seeing any moisture from this, we won’t escape the colder and blustery conditions it will bring. The warmer weather will take a back seat Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid 30s. The greatest impact we will see with this storm system will be strong winds on Thursday into Thursday night with north northwest winds howling 20 to 25 mph but potentially gusting to 40 mph. The winds will back off to a breeze Friday. Temperatures quickly rebound in time for next weekend with highs bouncing back into the mid-upper 40s.
