Tuesday Evening Weather Update; October 6

Temperatures will remain much above normal for the rest of the week.  Highs in the 80°s and lows in the 50°s.  If my forecast verifies this will be the warmest October 7-10 in Lincoln in 73 years!

TONIGHT:  Clear skies. Temperatures in the low 50°s.  Lincoln Low Temperature: 52°

WEDNESDAY:  Sunny skies.  Temperatures in the mid 80°s.  Lincoln High Temperature: 85°


Southeast Nebraska had an amazing run in temperatures Tuesday.  Morning lows were in the lower to middle 40°s.  Afternoon temperatures rose to the middle and upper 80°s.  In both Lincoln and Grand Island the temperature spread – from morning low to afternoon high – was 44°!  This goes in to books as the warmest October 6th in Lincoln in 13 years and ties for the 6th warmest in 133 years.
