Cold front brings drier air for Tuesday; Dry stretch of weather

A cold front located over the north-central United States will move south overnight, passing through Nebraska Tuesday morning.  Behind the front, winds will shift around to the north and bring in drier air.  Dew points will go from the upper 60°s Labor Day to the middle 50°s by Tuesday evening.  Winds will also pick-up, 10 to 18 mph sustained with gusts to 25 mph.

Temperatures will top out in the upper 70°s to lower 80°s Tuesday afternoon.  It should be a nice day.

DRY STRETCH

While several cold front will pass through southeast Nebraska over the next 7-10 days, only one of the fronts will bring a chance for rain.  That doesn’t come until Monday, September 13.  Over the next seven days two long range computer models suggest anywhere from 0.02″ to 0.20″ of rain falling.  Keep watering your lawn if you want your grass to stay green!
