High temperatures 25° above average on Monday
While Sunday turned out to be around 10° cooler compared to Saturday, it was still another nice day! High clouds made their presence known, yielding a mostly clear landscape for much of the day.
We’re keeping high clouds in the forecast throughout Sunday evening and overnight. However, they should start to thin out by Monday morning. We’re anticipating low temperatures to be warmer on Monday morning – in the middle-30s for Lincoln.
We keep mostly clear skies into Monday as well. There will be plenty of sun to go around, and that will aid in pushing high temperatures to near 70° in Lincoln. That is 25° above average for this time of year! It may be breezy at times, with winds out of the west and northwest gusting up to 25 mph at times.
By late Monday, we’re watching a weak disturbance to the northwest that will increase clouds on Monday evening, overnight, and into Tuesday morning. There is a very small chance that you may see an isolated sprinkle or brief light shower on Tuesday morning.
It’s looking like few will see these sprinkles. Those that do likely won’t see any meaningful rainfall – maybe a hundredth of an inch or two if you’re lucky. Stormcast does a good job at showing the isolated nature of these sprinkles.
We may see a period of brief clearing on Tuesday afternoon, followed by more clouds late Tuesday. Tuesday’s highs should fall back into the 50s as a result of this disturbance. That said, temperatures rise back into the 60s on Wednesday and near 70° by Thursday.
