Blustery conditions continue Saturday night
Wind gusts calming down
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The weather into the weekend and over the course of the next week is expected to remain pretty quiet. Temperatures are expected to generally be a bit above average and chances for any rain or snow are slim to none. Into the weekend though, wind will be an issue at times, particularly on Saturday.
Thanks to a cold front that moved through, blustery conditions were seen all day on Saturday to kick off the weekend. Crazy strong wind gusts of 60 MPH were seen in North Platte causing our feels like temperatures to be about 10 degrees cooler than they actually were. Temperatures were a bit cooler behind the front, but still fairly seasonal. High temperature on Saturday was 57° but felt much cooler with those winds.
Temperatures Saturday night and into Sunday morning are expected to be about the same as Saturday night with overnight lows generally sitting in the upper 20s to middle 30s across western Nebraska with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies and northwest winds at 15 to 25 MPH. With gusts up to 35 MPH.
Sunday should be a little better as winds won’t be as strong, but still a bit blustery. West winds at 10 to 15 MPH with some gusts up to 25 MPH are expected for Sunday. Temperatures should do a little better under mainly sunny skies with highs in the 50s to near 60° across western Nebraska.
Much of next week looks sunny, warmer, and dry. Temperatures for most of the week look to range from the upper 50s to upper 60s for western Nebraska. It’s not until late next week into next weekend that rain chances and cooler temperatures come back into the forecast.
