Tuesday Evening Weather Update; December 8, 2020

It was a record breaking day Tuesday in Lincoln.  The temperature passed the previous record – 61° – and topped out at 64°.  We will make a run at another record high temperature Wednesday.

Expect mainly sunny skies Wednesday.  I am conservatively forecasting 65° for the high temperature in Lincoln.  It would not surprise me if it climbs to 67° by 3:00pm-3:30pm.

TONIGHT:  Partly cloudy and not as cool.  Lows will be in the upper 20°s to lower 30°s.

WEDNESDAY:  Mainly sunny and warm.  Temperatures top out in the middle and upper 60°s.

THURSDAY:  Increasing clouds and cooler, but still much above normal for the date.  Highs will be in the lower to middle 50°s.

Changes come for the end of the week as upper-level energy, currently located off the west coast of Alaska, brings cooler air and precipitation to the area Friday.  As of right now, it looks like we could start with a rain/snow wintry mix, before changing over to light snow Friday.  Snow chances continue through Saturday.

There are still many details that need to be worked out before the weekend gets here.  There is also a trend in the data suggesting that the system gets pushed in to Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa, missing Nebraska all together.  Stay tuned to later forecasts!
