Tuesday Evening Weather Update; October 27, 2020
There will be a gradual warming trend over much of the next 7-10 days, including several days above normal.
TONIGHT: Clear skies. Cold, but not as cold as Tuesday morning. Temperatures drop to the upper teens to lower 20°s. Lincoln Low Temperature: 22°
WEDNESDAY: Sunny skies early. Clouds increasing through the day, becoming overcast by afternoon. I can’t completely rule out a few light showers in southern Nebraska near the Nebraska/Kansas state line. Temperatures top out in the upper 40°s to lower 50°s. Lincoln High Temperature: 51°
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Overcast skies with areas of fog developing. Temperatures will drop down to near freezing (32°F) by early Thursday for some locales so will have to watch out for a little freezing fog. Lincoln Low Temperature: 34°
TUESDAY MORNING CHILL:
Brrr! It got cold this morning. Temperatures dropped as low as 5° in Ord Tuesday morning.
Lincoln fell to 16° making this the coldest temperature in Lincoln since April 15, 2020 – 196 days. When looking back at weather records for the date this was the coldest temperature for October 27 in 23 years. Lincoln dropped to 8° on this date in 1997. This also ranks as the 2nd coldest temperature in the state capital for the date since 1887.
