Warm temperatures continue
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Temperatures will continue to be a big story as readings will remain well above average for early March. Look for highs on Monday to generally sit in the upper 60s to low 70s across much of the state with a ridge of high pressure aloft continuing to yield warm and dry weather.
With more sunshine and warm weather, getting outside to enjoy the early spring weather will be on many folks’ minds. Expect to see east/southeast winds at 15 to 20 MPH with gusts up to 25 MPH on Monday.
Take a look at the max wind gusts from Sunday below.
Warm weather will continue past this weekend and into early next week with afternoon high temperatures likely remaining in the lower 70s for Monday and Tuesday. A cold front is then forecast to drop through the area Tuesday into Wednesday bringing with it cooler and a little bit more seasonal weather for early to mid-March with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
Any chances for moisture are basically zero through the early week. It’s not likely until the middle and end of the week when chances for moisture return to the forecast. It appears now that rain and some snow will be possible at times late this week and into this coming weekend.
