Relief from bitter cold not too far away

Although Monday looks like another very cold day, things are starting to trend in a better direction. Wind speeds won’t be nearly as high compared to those from this weekend. Winds should be in the ballpark of 5-10 mph for much of Monday. This is still enough to cause a wind chill, but they won’t be quite as low.

We’re still dealing with wind chills below zero during the morning, but likely in the 0° to -10° range. After about lunchtime, we expect wind chills to rise above zero but remain in the single digits.

Hour-by-Hour - Temps & Wind Chill

Actual air temperatures will rise into the teens. We’re forecasting a high near 16° in Lincoln, which is very close to the average low temperature for this time of year.

Monday Forecast

We will also have an area of high pressure beginning to move into the area on Monday, which will attempt to give us a little bit more sunshine. For that matter, mostly sunny skies are likely to stick around for the rest of the week.

Forecast - This Week

Meanwhile, temperatures will be climbing. Highs return to the upper-20s and low-30s on Tuesday, and we continue to warm on Wednesday. By the weekend, we could be dealing with 40°+ highs. The weather will be very inviting this upcoming weekend, making this past weekend’s cold snap a distant memory.
