Warmest open to October in 4 years; Above normal trend to continue

What a start to October!  Beautiful blue skies Sunday and Monday (we can forget Friday and Saturday) and temperatures in the 80°s.  This is the warmest start to an October in four years for Lincoln.

The trend of above normal temperatures will for much of the upcoming week and going in to the weekend.  Highs will be from the middle 70°s to perhaps as high as the middle 80°s Saturday.  The only chance for rain over the next six days is Thursday with a very small chance for an isolated shower.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the weekend.  Long range computer models suggest a storm developing in the north-central Plains.  Ahead of the storm, temperatures should surge on strong southerly/southwesterly winds.  A cold front is projected to pass Sunday morning.  At this distance, it appears the front will pass “dry”.  While cooler air will work in behind the cold front, temperatures still look to get in to the lower/middle 70°s Sunday.
