Fog overnight; Tracking Arctic blast for the weekend

A foggy Monday for parts of southeast Nebraska.  At last check Grand Island’s visibility was above 1-mile for only 90-minutes today.  We’ll likely see more areas of fog developing overnight.  It may linger for a while Tuesday.

There will be a chance for rain changing over to snow Thursday.  This does not look to be a significant snow maker at this time.

As first advertised last week, eyes are paying attention to the weekend as long range computer models advertise an Arctic Blast coming to the Cornhusker state.  Cold air is moving out of northern Siberia and will pass over the Arctic.  The cold air is currently projected to arrive Saturday and it may stick around for a while.  If forecast models are correct, Lincoln could spend upwards of 140-consecutive hours below freezing.  Stay tuned!

TONIGHT:  Areas of fog developing under cloudy skies.  Temperatures drop to the lower to middle 20°s.

TUESDAY:  Expect to see mostly cloudy skies, with areas of fog through late morning.  Temperatures will rise to the middle 30°s.

WEDNESDAY:  Partly sunny and breezy.  It will be warmer with temperatures topping out in the middle 40°s.
