NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Throw open the windows, air out the house and find some outside time, as November again puts the heat on us. Wednesday’s temperatures will be the ceiling for the remainder of the week as temperatures soar into the mid and upper 70s. Several records will be threatened on Wednesday...North Platte (78)...Valentine (77)...Broken Bow (74)...Imperial (79). Some high clouds are expected to mix with sunshine during the day, which could inhibit the temperature rise if enough sunshine gets filtered out. But even so it will be a mild day by November standards.

Thursday will continue to be mild, but a weak cold front sweeping through the state Thursday night will bring some cooler temperatures on Friday. The main weather concern will arrive with a stronger weather system arriving Friday night into Saturday.

Today we could reach a record dating back to 1908.

Precipitation looks likely but there remains questions as to the timing of precipitation and the type. Right now it appears the type of precipitation will follow the heating and cooling of the day...rain during the day when temps are above freezing, transitioning to snow in the evening once the thermometer drops past the freezing mark. How quickly that transition occurs remains in question. We’ll get a better feel for things as forecast models work things out over the next several days. In the meantime...enjoy the mild weather!
