Lincoln Tonight Hour By Hour

As we head through the overnight, temperatures will slowly increase from the 20s into the middle 30s by sunrise. This will be in part because of a south to southwest wind at 10 to 25 mph.

3day Lincoln Forecast With Hourlies

For Friday, we’ll start off fairly mild, but won’t warm up a whole lot. We’ll top out around 40 degrees with partly cloudy skies. We may see a few flurries on and off, too.


On Saturday, a cold front will bring with it a chance for snow, mainly for northern Nebraska. A Winter Storm Watch is in place for north central and northeast Nebraska because of this.

Snow Potential

Snow will start up late Friday in NW and northern Nebraska and try to push south into Saturday morning. Heavy snow is most likely in the northern parts of Nebraska, with it tapering off the further south you get. Along and north of I80 may see a trace to an inch on Saturday. Wind won’t be much of an issue, but it may gust to around 30 mph so open areas that see snow may encounter visibility issues.
