NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - After a week that forced us to rummage around the closets searching for not only our umbrellas but heavier coats, we may have lost sight of the fact that technically it IS still summertime. Well, this weekend we will be pushing the reset button which will gradually take us back into ‘summer’ mode as temperatures gradually transition back to short sleeve weather. An upper low-pressure system that seemingly took up permanent residence in Western Colorado, has finally decided to move on, taking with it the cold, the clouds and the rain.

Saturday and Sunday bring us much warmer and drier weather than what we have seen the past week. In fact, some of you may even want to turn your AC back on as temperatures will climb into the upper 80s on Sunday. This pattern will continue to start our work week as well with temperatures in the upper 80s and very sunny skies.

A nearly perfect mid-September weather pattern will bring abundant sunshine and warmer temperatures, especially toward the middle part of the week as temperatures make a run approaching the 90-degree mark. A cold front will swipe through the region Thursday into Friday which, for now, doesn’t appear to alter our weather all that much, only knocking temperatures back into the upper 70s to lower 80s. The entire week looks dry.

Here is a look at the current drought conditions for our state. We are very dry which could cause an enhanced fire risk.
