Remaining warm; Thanksgiving preview

We are now officially out of the cold snap, and temperatures are trending in a much warmer direction. Despite a chilly morning on Monday, afternoon highs will be very comfortable.

We expect a high temperature near 53° in Lincoln on Monday. Skies will be mostly sunny, and wind speeds should back off quite a bit compared to Sunday.

Monday Forecast

While a wave of high clouds is expected to arrive early Tuesday, this will only probably yield a filtered sunshine effect. Tuesday will still be mostly sunny overall. In fact, Tuesday will likely be even warmer.

Next Three Days


By Wednesday night, more clouds will reenter the picture. This is ahead of our next potential weathermaker, which is set to be with us on Thanksgiving. Computer model guidance has hinted that some areas may see a rain/snow mix on Thanksgiving, but we haven’t seen a whole lot of consistency in the data.

Part of the reason for this is that the disturbance is still 3000-4000 miles away. We’ll have a better idea of how things play out once this wave moves over land on Tuesday night. Once that happens, the system can be sampled by weather balloon data.

Thanksgiving Disturbance

While a wintry mix can’t be ruled out on Thanksgiving, the finer details will come to light in the coming days. I have a feeling we’ll see better agreement in the data on Tuesday night and Wednesday.
