NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Strong wind gusts up to 40 MPH were seen on Sunday and will continue through Columbus Day. Gusts up to 35 MPH can be expected during the day with mostly sunny skies (and haze) to be seen. A cold front is expected to bring significant changes to the forecast as showers will be possible Sunday evening across central Nebraska. At this moment in time, the precipitation amounts do not look promising.

This chance for rain Sunday evening will likely be our only chance for any significant moisture across the area as we head over the course of the next week. Rainfall amounts across central Nebraska are showing only a trace to 0.10 inches of rainfall.

Behind the cold front, more seasonal weather is expected for much of next week with highs in the 60s and 70s with more dry weather expected through the week. Highs for Monday will be much cooler than what we saw over the weekend reaching the low/mid-70s. Although that is still unseasonably warm, we will take what we can get. Temperatures will continue this trend through Wednesday, but then temperatures will drastically drop into the mid-50s.

Drastically cooler temperatures will be seen for the Panhandle on Monday.
