Frost Occurred in Some Areas Last Night

A dry high pressure system moved across the area last night, which created a favorable situation for the formation of frost across parts of western Nebraska. Many locations fell to 32 degrees or lower for at least a brief time. The coldest temperatures were observed in low-lying areas such as the Platte River Valley.
