Back Above Freezing 12/17/2020

Temperatures this morning are in the teens and twenties with wind chill values in the single digits for some. Patchy freezing fog has also developed mainly to the east of Lincoln, and could make your morning commute a little slick. Make sure to also add some extra time to your morning routine to scrape your windshield as frost has formed on outdoor surfaces. Once the sun goes up today, temperatures will quickly warm up thanks to clear skies. We finally will see highs above freezing in the upper 30s by the evening today, which means snow will begin melting across the region. This melting might produce more freezing fog tomorrow morning, before we warm up even more to highs in the mid-40s for Friday. We hold onto above average temperatures just before the holidays, when temperatures are expected to take a plunge.

  • TODAY: Back above freezing with some cities flirting with the low 40s, and mostly sunny skies. HIGH: 38
  • FRIDAY: Hello 40s! High temperatures will soar about ten degrees above average for December with highs in the mid 40s and partly cloudy skies. HIGH: 45
  • SATURDAY: We continue to stay mild with mostly clear skies and a slight chance for a few snow flurries in the morning. HIGH: 42
  • SUNDAY: Near the low 50s with mostly sunny skies. HIGH: 49
  • MONDAY: More sunshine and mild temperatures. HIGH: 48
