Spotty drizzle chance on Monday, but still mild
After a very warm weekend, the mild weather continues into Monday morning. Temperatures sat in the mid-30s for much of southeast Nebraska early Monday, and we expect temperatures to rise into the 40s and 50s by afternoon.
Highs will likely be closely tied to how much cloud cover we see throughout the day. An upper-level disturbance will be passing through the area. This will result in some periods with more clouds, and others with more sunshine.
When low clouds are overhead, there may be just enough moisture to see some spotty drizzle. This won’t amount to much, if any, measurable precipitation.
As we head into Tuesday, skies will clear. Sunshine will not be lacking on Tuesday, and we expect 50s for highs yet again in Lincoln. Wednesday also looks warm, although there will be a wave of low pressure to our southeast.
That wave gets just close enough to southeast Nebraska to warrant a mention. That said, most of the rain/snow associated with that should fall to the south and east of Lincoln. We’ll watch the latest trends to see if things shift in a more favorable direction to see precipitation in Lincoln. As of now, precipitation chances don’t look all that great on Wednesday.
There is a slightly better chance to see something fall from the sky on Thursday, in the form of a few snow showers. We’ll be cooler for the day on Friday behind that system as well.
