Drying out over the next couple of days
Sunday morning started off on a soggy note for some across the state. Most rain fell west of the Tri-Cities – west of Highway 281 to be more specific. Even if you saw rain in the morning, Sunday afternoon was an overall nice day.
Since no showers have developed through early Sunday evening, I’m hard-pressed to think that we’ll see any rain for the rest of the evening. Lincoln will be mostly clear overnight Sunday and into Monday morning with lows near 61°. There may be some patchy fog in some spots for your morning commute.
We won’t rule out a small chance for an isolated storm west of the Tri-Cities – similar to what we saw last night. However, high-resolution computer model guidance has trended drier and drier over the last several runs. The moral of the story is that most will stay dry overnight, but if anyone has the slightest chance to see rain, it will be mainly west of the Tri-Cities.
Monday looks mostly clear and slightly warmer with a high temperature of 86°.
We’ll continue the warming trend into next week, perhaps reaching the upper 90s for highs by the end of the workweek. As we warm up, we will also dry out. Summer is coming back in full force!
