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 shirt sleeve weather. An unrelenting 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.
As the low pushes east the clouds will clear and the only showers we’ll have to contend with will be rays of sunshine, as temperatures begin to respond in kind with highs climbing into the mid 70 on Saturday, before jumping into the mid 80s on Sunday. 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.
