Lincoln Weather Update: Friday, May 8

Lincoln finally got that much needed rain. With moderate to heavy rainfall overnight, we managed to pick up a little over half an inch of rain! The rain and clouds have moved out by daybreak and sunny skies will remain the rest of the day. It will be cool and breezy for the day as highs climb near 60 degrees with north winds at 10-20 mph.

Patchy frost is likely as we head into Saturday morning. Clear skies and light wind will allow temperatures to fall into the middle 30s. You may want to think about covering up or bringing in any plants or flowers tonight!

Mother’s Day weekend will be nice, chilly but nice. Mainly sunny and dry for both Saturday and Sunday. Although, a cold front will quickly pass through Saturday evening, allowing for a chance of rain in the evening and overnight. Saturday will be the warmest day in the middle 60s, while Mother’s Day will see highs in the upper 50s. It could always be worse, like in the northeast part of the country where they will be bracing for record cold and snow this Mother’s Day weekend.

The pattern turns active next week with rain and storm chances a good portion of the week. Those unseasonably cool temperatures will persist into much of next week with a slow warm up by the weekend.
