Lincoln Weather Update: Sunday, October 11th

Another summer-like afternoon as temperatures soared into the upper 80s with some help from gusty south winds today. So far today Lincoln had a peak wind gust of 45 mph!

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued until midnight across eastern Nebraska. A strong cold front will continue pushing eastward, with strong to severe storms developing along that front. Damaging winds are likely, but hail is also possible in earlier storm development. Storms first developing in northeast Nebraska, before extending southward into a squall line as is continues moving into eastern Nebraska tonight. Staying windy as gusts of 40-50 mph will be possible into early Monday morning.

Skies clear and wind relaxes by daybreak tomorrow. Waking up to lows in the upper 40s. The start of your work week will feel much more like fall with highs in the lower 70s. And some good news to boot, it won’t be windy! We may make another run towards 80 by Wednesday before another front rolls through bringing in cooler air and knocking highs back into the upper 50s for the end of the week.
