Midweek warmup coming to an end with cooler temperatures and clouds to return on Thursday
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - On Wednesday North Platte saw well above average temperatures with highs in the 50s, where this time of year we should generally be in the mid 40s. This warmth is going to stick around in out atmosphere over the next few days, somewhat. While we will see temperatures drop as low pressure moves into the region with some cooler air, but we’ll also see clouds move in with that. Those clouds should help trap heat into our atmosphere, so while we will see a small cooldown temperatures will steady and we will see some warmer temperatures start to bank up later in the week.
We’ll see temperatures in the average range over the weekend, before starting off the next work week in the 40s and 50s, with even high 50s by mid week. These above average temperatures are triggered by El Niño, which is pushing warmer air up from the south, preventing us from getting down to our normal average temperatures for this year.
