Did you enjoy the “warm-up” today?  Temperatures climbed back to the double digits Wednesday afternoon.  Lincoln finally made it back to double digits – above zero – for the first time since 4:35 p.m. Saturday, February 6.

Southeast Nebraska will have have temperatures back in to the double digits – above zero – Thursday afternoon, perhaps the last time until next Thursday.

Strong high pressure moving through Canada will push another round of “cold” air through the northern Plains Friday through early next week.  The coldest air looks to arrive for Valentine’s Day and Monday, February 15.  Temperatures may drop to -14° to -20° below zero for morning lows.  This will be highly dependent on cloud cover.  More clouds will equate to “warmer” overnight lows.

TONIGHT:  Partly cloudy.  Lows a few degrees below zero.

THURSDAY:   Mostly cloudy.  Snow flurries possible.  Highs will be from 8° to 13°.  Wind chill values will be from 0° to -10° during the afternoon.

FRIDAY:  Increasing clouds.  Snow showers with accumulations possible.  This does not look to be a significant snow.  Temperatures top out in the low single digits.
