Permanently cloudy ‚cold, windy Thursday; A lucky and sunny St. Patrick’s Day

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) -SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP)- The atmosphere turned cold, cloudy and windy for Thursday with a chance of snow ending by noon. A rainbow will ensue as we head into our St. Patrick’s Day.

A steep pressure gradient between a high pressure system to our north and west and a low pressure system to our south is causing strong winds of 20 to 40 mph through Thursday. These winds are coming from the north and this will cause temperatures to be chilly during the day, specifically 20 degrees cooler and 30 to 40 degrees cooler than Wednesday with highs in the 30s. As for the sky, the snow showers will cease during the late morning and be replaced by mostly cloudy conditions. Overnight on Thursday, temperatures will drop into the 10s to 20s with clear skies as our high pressure system takes over and the winds will also calm down.
