WARM STRETCH OF WEATHER
It appears that Lincoln will do something it has not accomplished in 133 years of weather records. That is having six consecutive days reaching 70° in November.
Tuesday should be the warmest day of the week but 70°s are in the forecast every day through Saturday. Sunday may even make a run at 70° if there is some sunshine during the afternoon.
WARMEST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION DAY
Not only does Tuesday have the chance at breaking the record high temperature for November 3, but it also has a great chance at being the warmest Presidential Election Day.
Looking back at weather records, all the way back to 1888 when Grover Cleveland was elected President, the highest temperature has been 75° in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected President.
It made it up to 73° the day Harry Truman was elected President in 1952 for second warmest.
