Mild weather continues next week
Southeast Nebraskans saw an early taste of spring Sunday afternoon; highs were in the middle and upper 50s! With the calmer winds on Sunday afternoon, it was arguably the best day of the weekend. Temperatures elsewhere ranged from the upper 30s to low 40s where most of the snow still sits.
Speaking of winds, the overnight hours of Sunday will see southeasterly winds pick up and gust upwards of 25 mph ahead of a weak cold front headed our way. It’ll be a windy start to the week and to the day on Monday.
The weak boundary moving through will not have a ton of moisture associated with it, but enough that a few stray sprinkles are possible. Most models show the best chance to see this drizzle in the afternoon on Monday around lunchtime, mostly to the north and east. Clouds will stick around for a most of the day, but our mild stretch is not over.
Monday through Wednesday, temperatures will still be above average and hovering in the upper 40s for some time. For now, it isn’t until Thursday that temperatures will cool into the weekend. But even that cooldown looks short-lived.
By Wednesday, the weather pattern will change. Wednesday’s system has a lot of uncertainty in its track, but rain looks to possible first, with snow chances later. It’ll be the next thing to keep an eye on in the meantime.
