Warmer Saturday with light rain possible later
Black Friday has had some pleasant weather for anyone shopping outdoor malls and walking outside. Temperatures in the middle and upper 50s on Friday afternoon were well-above average again, and the warmer weather will stay through the start of the weekend. Friday evening will consist of mostly clear skies, so we’ll drop into the 20s to start the day on Saturday.
Taking a sneak peek at temperatures, Saturday will be the warmest day as we make a run for the 60s for the last weekend in November. Then, a front pushes through with some cooler air behind it. We’ll dip slightly in temperatures but stay close to normal.
Before the front, a system pushes to the northeast from the southern Plains and looks to “clip” the southeastern cities. There’s a better chance off that way, but a small chance for Lincoln still exists but less likely overall. The main impact will be more clouds through Saturday evening and Sunday morning but some clearing by the end of the weekend.
And if you’re looking for a sign to put up those lights, now is the time to do so. Friday was wonderful, but opportunities on Saturday and Sunday are there, too. Most of the day Saturday will be warm and mostly sunny, so the light stays green to “go ahead” and do it. However, a yellow bulb was lit for Sunday with the clouds and cooler weather, but it’ll still be possible to decorate then as well.
Winter weather impacts may be possible with a system looking to come our way by Tuesday, and initially it looks to bring rain with a transition to snow. That’ll be something to look out for as we get closer and closer to that timeframe.
