More melting as we get warmer Sunday

Despite some high-level clouds on Saturday, southerly flow brought in conditions that allowed temperatures to reach the upper 40s and lower 50s. A look at those high temperatures (below) shows much of where our snow fell this past week, in shades of blue in and around I-80.

Highs Sat

A breeze out of the southwest continues into Saturday night, keeping overnight temperatures mild. We will slide through the 30s and land in the low to mid 20s by Sunday morning.

Temperatures across southeast Nebraska are not expected to vary all that much overnight, with the high clouds departing and mostly clear skies. Lincoln’s low of about 23° will still be a few degrees above our normal low around 19° for this point in February.

Sunday will arguably look like the slightly better afternoon to be outside. Winds will be calmer, temperatures will be slightly warmer, and we will see sun once more. A cold front will push through, but no results are expected in terms of cooler air or precipitation chances. In that case, we will continue to melt for another day.

Skycast Tomorrow

Most models keep us dry through Sunday evening, with only a slight chance to see flurries or sprinkles by Sunday night. However, most of us stay dry though Monday and continue to warm into the 50s. Lincoln is not far behind some of the areas that saw 50s on Saturday because they had less snow on the ground, so only up from here!
