Quick shot of cold air

A cold front passed through southeast Nebraska Monday afternoon dropping temperatures.  Temperatures fell 15° in a five hour period between 12:20 p.m. and 4:54 p.m. in Lincoln.

Temperatures will continue to drop through early Tuesday morning under clear skies.  Lows will be in the single digits to lower 10°s.  A fairly light wind will still be able to produce wind chills -4° to 2° for the morning.

Partly cloudy skies to begin Tuesday will thicken with clouds midday.  Temperatures will only top out in the low 20°s for the afternoon.  Wind chills will be in the teens.

Another cold morning is expected Wednesday as it drops to the low single digits under clear skies.

Temperatures will moderate back to the middle to upper 30°s Wednesday and Thursday.  Warmer air should arrive ahead of a cold front that will pass Saturday.  At this time, it is looking like highs should be in the middle 50°s Saturday afternoon.
