More clouds, and a bit cooler
Temperatures really spiked on Monday, with Lincoln nearing the 70° mark. However, more clouds will arrive on Tuesday morning which will have a cooling effect on our temperatures. We’re looking for a high near 50° on Tuesday in Lincoln. Highs may be slightly warmer for some of our western communities, where the clouds may clear by late afternoon.
Precipitation chances are pretty low for Tuesday in eastern Nebraska. A wintry mix will be possible in the Panhandle and north-central Nebraska through the morning and afternoon. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of northwest Nebraska until 4 p.m. CDT. Light snow and ice accumulations will be possible.
Meanwhile, rain will be ongoing to our south in Kansas. The more substantial precipitation misses Lincoln to the north and south on Tuesday. That said, there may be enough moisture to see a few sprinkles in eastern Nebraska.
While a few sprinkles can’t be ruled out on Wednesday, the next best chance to see rain will arrive on Wednesday night. They will arrive in the form of scattered showers. In fact, northern Nebraska may be able to see some snow. This will be something we’re watching.
Temperatures will be all over the place in the coming days too, but all indications point toward the rest of the workweek being cooler than Lincoln’s 68° on Monday.
