One more day with highs in the 50s
Lincoln has been able to reach or surpass the 50° mark for the past four days, and Wednesday will make day number five. The vast majority of the day features mostly sunny skies. We’re looking at highs in the low to mid-50s for many on Wednesday afternoon.
Clouds begin to increase by Wednesday evening, and a rain/snow mix may get awfully close to the area. Most of the moisture associated with this system will fall to the south and east of Lincoln. Areas closer to Auburn, Nebraska City, and Falls City have the best chance of seeing precipitation on Wednesday night.
If you are able to see any of it, it would likely occur after the evening commute. There’s also a chance Lincoln stays completely dry on Wednesday night, and that will especially be the case to the west.
We are afforded a better chance to see something fall from the sky on Thursday, in the form of some snow showers. These will be moving in from the northwest.
Accumulations with Thursday’s snow showers appear to be very light across the state. Most are looking at under 1″ of snow accumulation. A few localized areas may be “luckier” and receive an inch or two, but that will likely be the exception as opposed to the rule.
Temperatures will back off on Thursday as these systems pass through. However, temperatures rebound back into the 50°+ territory by the weekend and hover in that range into next week.
