Lincoln Weather Update: Sunday, May 24

Severe Thunderstorm Watch & Flash Flood Warning

Isolated strong to severe storms are possible starting in the late afternoon and lasting throughout the overnight hours. These storms could bring heavy rainfall, damaging wind gusts (60mph), golf ball-sized hail and an isolated tornado. A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for the southeastern portion of the state, including Lancaster county, until 8PM. Thanks to soil saturation from the previous day’s storms, a FLASH FLOOD WATCH is also in effect for this region until 7PM Monday.

Temperatures will drop to the low 60s overnight, with a northeasterly breeze of 5-10mph.

Soggy conditions continue for Memorial Day with spotty rain showers throughout the day. Temperatures will stay on the cool side, rising to the upper 60s, with northerly winds of 10-15mph.

We start to dry out as rain chances decrease on Tuesday with highs climbing into the mid 70s.
