A dry Wednesday, but more rain on the way

Wednesday morning brought forth much quieter weather for southeast Nebraska. Low temperatures bottomed out in the low to mid-60s for many on Wednesday morning with dry conditions prevailing. We’re waking up to some low clouds overspreading the area, but no precipitation will come from them.

I anticipate that low clouds will hang around into the mid-morning hours, but should start to clear out by the afternoon. Wednesday is shaping up to be a nice day overall under mostly clear skies with highs in the low 80s. If the low clouds from the morning hang around a bit longer, I wouldn’t be shocked to see high temperatures a degree or two cooler.

Wednesday Forecast

On Wednesday night, clouds will once again arrive in Southeast Nebraska. However, we should remain mostly dry overnight Wednesday and into Thursday. Lows by Thursday morning should be in the middle-60s.

Wednesday Night Forecast

Our next rainmaker is set to arrive sometime Thursday afternoon and evening. We may see rain approaching the southwest corner of the state as early as Thursday morning, the Tri-Cities by lunchtime Thursday, and Lincoln by Thursday afternoon.

Stormcast Thursday Afternoon

I’m not expecting a whole lot in terms of severe weather on Thursday. In fact, the environment appears favorable for these storms to weaken as they approach Lincoln. While I think there will likely be some scattered rain regardless, I’m questioning whether we’ll hear many rumbles of thunder on Thursday.

Thursday rain may persist into early Friday morning, but it appears that there will be a lull in precipitation on Friday afternoon. Another disturbance should arrive sometime late Friday and into Saturday. This could bring a few isolated showers and storms late Friday and Saturday morning. As things appear now, conditions look drier for the afternoon on Husker game day.
