On Saturday, there was a fire near Lake McConaughy... due to our westerly winds, smoke is being distributed across our area. Here is a look at the smoke conditions for our state. There were reports of ash falling from the sky near Imperial, NE and throughout the panhandle.

Shorts and tank tops were worn on Saturday... but on Sunday you may want to break out those sweatshirts and long pants. Expect temperatures to shift dramatically on Sunday as two rounds of cooler air are expected to push into the region. The first wave will arrive on Sunday as temperatures retreat into the upper 60s to low 70s for the area. Along with these cooler temperatures... precipitation chances will be at a high for the week of 20%.

Temperatures then fall a few more degrees on Monday with another push of colder air moving through. Daytime highs for Tuesday will be almost ten degrees warmer with max temperatures in the upper 70s. Wednesday we will remain in the 70s with mostly sunny skies. Thursday, temperatures will retreat back into the 60s.

By midweek next week, overnight lows could be slipping into the mid-30s, so some areas of frost will be possible in the forecast. Quite a drastic change in the weather if you ask me!!
