Cloudy, cooler, and blustery

A rain/snow mix affected the far southeast tip of the state for much of Wednesday night. All of this moisture ended up to the south and east of Lincoln, which was pretty much the expectation. This moisture exits southeast Nebraska by 6-7 a.m. Thursday.

That said, another upper-level disturbance may bring some snow showers through the state on Thursday. These will be very light, producing little to no accumulation for most.

Stormcast Thursday Afternoon

It will also be a cooler day, with high temperatures in the upper-30s to low-40s. This will bring the five-day streak of 50°+ high temperatures in Lincoln to an end.

Thursday Forecast

It will also be blustery. Winds will be out of the north and northwest sustained at 15-25 mph, with higher gusts perhaps in the ballpark of 35-40 mph. The breeze will push wind chills into the 20s for most of the afternoon.

Wind Speed Forecast - Today

Sunshine returns on Friday, and that will persist into the weekend. Temperatures also rebound starting Friday. We’re looking at middle-40s for highs on Friday, with highs returning to the 50s over the weekend. It should be another very nice weekend to get outside!
