NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Over the past week, our temperatures have drastically changed. We started the week with negative values as our high. Finally, temperatures have decided to warm back up as that arctic air has finally left the region. Although we were still below our average high for this time of the year… I think many of us will gladly take the mid/upper 30s over highs near 0.

We will kick off the work week with temperatures finally making it back to average conditions. Mostly sunny skies can be expected along with temperatures in the upper 40s. We may see those warmer temperatures again… but breezy conditions stick around through the afternoon. Expect winds out of the west at 10 to 15 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH.

The gusty conditions die down as we head into the late evening and overnight hours Monday night… remaining out of the west at 10 to 15 MPH. Low temperatures stay much warmer than what we have seen in weeks with lows dropping into the low/mid-20s.

Much warmer next week.

Tuesday is still on track to be our warmest day of the week with temperatures sitting in the low 50s with sunny skies. But, as we head into the evening partly cloudy skies start to roll back into our forecast. Wednesday temperatures spiral downward yet again but nothing like what we have seen over the last couple of weeks. Throughout the remainder of the week, temperatures sit steadily in the upper 30s to low/mid-40s.

Much warmer air in store to finish February.

But, do not get too used to these warmer temperatures. As we near the end of the weekend another round of possible snowfall comes back into central Nebraska. Stay tuned for a more updated snowfall forecast as we get closer to the weekend… and be sure to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather this week!
