Drying out and cooling down to end the workweek
Then warmer temps and sunny skies to start next week
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP)- A cold front energized by a low pressure trough lifting north, brought rain to the Greater Nebraska area Wednesday night. The slow moving front will tracked into the North Platte area early in the evening as rain coverage increased and intensified. Good moisture, almost twice as much as we usually see this late in September was wrung out of the atmosphere, with most picking up 1 to 3″ or more rainfall amounts.
By Thursday morning the front moved through central and eastern parts of the state leaving cooler temperatures in its wake. Only scattered showers in our far eastern counties were still present, as most of rain will be over the eastern part of the state today with the front to our east. Highs on Thursday will be in the 60s.
Another upper level low will trudge from Colorado into Kansas and then into Southeast Nebraska Friday and Saturday. We could see a few showers across Western Nebraska but the better chance for now look across Kansas and the southeastern part of the state. Its looking mild and dry from Sunday into next week with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.
