Passing cold front drops temperatures midweek
Absolutely fantastic weather around southeast Nebraska Tuesday afternoon. Another sunny skies allowing temperatures to climb 10°+ above normal for the date.
There was a wide range in temperatures thanks in part to snow on the ground. However, some locations were pushing 70°s during the day.
53° in Lincoln Tuesday is not only the warmest temperature of February but is the warmest temperature in over a month. The last time the capital city was in the 50°s was January 21, 2021 when it reached 51°.
A cold front is passing through the state Tuesday evening. Winds are shifting around to the northwest behind the front.
The front will bring cooler air to the state Wednesday. High temperatures will be 10° to 20° cooler compared to Tuesday, but temperatures will be near the normal highs for the date. (Lincoln’s normal high temperature is 43°.)
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy early, clearing by Wednesday morning. Lows in the middle to upper 20°s.
WEDNESDAY: Mainly sunny and cooler. Highs in the lower 40°s.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and seasonable. Highs in the lower to middle 40°s.
