Tuesday Evening Weather Update; October 13, 2020

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and not as cool.  Temperatures will drop to the upper 40°s to around 50°.  Winds will begin to increase overnight, gusting to 30 mph by sunrise.  Lincoln Low Temperature: 50°

WEDNESDAY:  Mostly sunny early.  Clouds increase by late afternoon.  It will be warm and windy as a cold front passes through southeast Nebraska.  Temperatures will be in the middle 70°s to around 80°.  Winds will start out of the southwest, shifting to the northwest after the cold front passes.  Winds may gust 30-35 mph throughout the day.  Lincoln High Temperature: 77°

Because of windy conditions and dry vegetation, Red Flag Warnings may be issued for much of central Nebraska Wednesday afternoon.

LOOKING LONG TERM

Computer models are mixed as to what will happen with southeast Nebraska’s weather starting Sunday.  It does look like it will turn cooler, but just how cool?  Right now I think temperatures may struggle to climb out of the 40°s Sunday afternoon because of cloud cover.

Going in to next week computer models are very far apart in their projections.  One keeps things cool and wet, with daily chances for rain – 1.50″ of rain through October 23, which another tries to keep things warmer with only 0.29″ of precipitation through October 29.  I’ll continue monitoring the data as it comes in and make changes to the 10-Day Outlook as we get closer to the end of the week.  Stay tuned!
