A Cool Start to the Month
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Cool Canadian air continues to spill into the state through Thursday. Skies will be mostly sunny but with a northerly breeze temperatures will only climb into the 50s across Northern Nebraska with 60s from Interstate 80 southward. Light winds, clear skies in conjunction with the colder air will provide optimal conditions for frost to develop Thursday night into early Friday, especially across the northern and western parts of the region. In addition to this, we have a freeze warning that will go into effect at 3 a.m. CDT and will last until 9 a.m. on Friday.
The month of September closed out with a rainfall deficit of 82-hundreths in North Platte and that dry trend will continue through at least the first third of the month of October. There is a slight chance for some rain on Friday as a disturbance tracks into the region, but without much moisture in the atmosphere to work with, any rain development will be spotty and light. October begins with below normal temperatures that will carry into the weekend before a warming trend takes shape early next week, as 80 degree days reemerge.
