Cold, breezy, and a few flurries not out of the question
A few flurries are showing up on the radar early Friday. All of the computer model guidance does not hint at any flurries through the day, but in light of the morning radar trends, we cannot rule them out. If you have clouds, there’s a chance you could see flakes fly.
We’re otherwise mostly cloudy and cold. Actual air temperatures should be a few degrees cooler on Friday. We’re forecasting a high in the middle to upper-20s in Lincoln.
It will still be windy on Friday, with wind gusts upwards of 35 mph possible during the morning and early afternoon. While it will still be breezy on Friday night, the winds will be backing off.
Nevertheless, the wind will still add a bite to the air on Friday afternoon, producing wind chills in the single digits to lower teens across the area.
For the weekend, we should see a little bit more sunshine. We’ll eventually turn sunny on Saturday, with a high in the low-30s. Sunday appears to be the warmer day, perhaps reaching the upper-30s.
We have added a small chance for snow on Monday, but there’s still a good chance that the system misses us to our southeast. It’s just something to watch for now. We may have a slightly better chance to see some snow next Wednesday, which happens to be the start of winter. After that, it will become bitterly cold leading up to Christmas.
