Warm temps will be pleasant change next week


It seems like winter is coming to an end, at least according to next week’s weather forecast.

With the switch to Daylight Savings Time coming early Sunday morning, residents will not only be moving their clocks ahead an hour, but will also be springing into 60-degree weather.

The forecast through March 13 predicts temperatures rising into the 60s with light winds, according to the Weather Channel’s national forecast. Along with less wind, precipitation isn’t expected through the week.

According to the Cheyenne, Wyo., Weather Forecast Office, the reason behind the warmer temperatures is the change in the patterns of the jet stream shifting toward Canada.

“This change in patterns is causing less wind and cold fronts resulting in above average temperatures for March,” said Mike Jamski of the Cheyenne office. “Sometimes it’s not uncommon for there to be temperature swings in March.”

Although it’s out of the ordinary for these warmer temperatures, they won’t break any records. Record highs for early March in Sidney have been set a high than 80 degrees.
