A cold front brings cooler temperatures and rain chances

As we close out the workweek, significant changes are coming to the forecast in the form of a cold front. That front will pass through southeast Nebraska on Friday morning and afternoon.

This will result in a significant temperature variation across the area. We expect highs in the upper-80s for some of our southern counties, with 70s farther north. Lincoln will be caught in between these air masses, where highs may top out in the mid-80s on Friday. Highs are entirely dependent on the timing of the cold front.

Friday Forecast

Spotty showers are possible during the day on Friday in central and northeast Nebraska, but will likely stay to the west of Lincoln. Rain chances are fairly low for southeast Nebraska on Friday afternoon.

On Friday night, we expect a band of precipitation to set up to the north and west of Lincoln. As the night progresses, this band will migrate towards Lincoln.

Stormcast Friday Night

Lincoln’s highest rain chance appears to be on Saturday morning per the latest data, with the activity becoming more scattered as the day progresses.

Probability of Rain

Temperatures will be significantly cooler on Saturday, with highs stuck in the 60s for many areas. Conditions will dry out on Sunday, and it will get slightly warmer. Even so, we’re looking at upper-70s for highs on Sunday.
