Warming through the weekend; Warmest in 20 years

Ten out of the last eleven days have been below normal and that is about to change.  A weak cold front will pass through southeast Nebraska overnight.  The only thing you may notice will be winds out of the north/northeast Saturday.

There won’t be much of a difference with temperatures Saturday compared to Friday.  Temperatures should return back to the lower 60°s Saturday afternoon.  Skies will start out mostly sunny in the morning, turning partly cloudy for the afternoon.

Dma Tomorrow High

A warm front will lift through the region early Sunday morning.  I can’t rule out a chance for a passing shower as the warm front passes.  The best chance for this will be in northern/northeastern Nebraska.

Sunday should be a really nice day.  Skies turn sunny by afternoon.  Winds shift out of the south, and it will likely turn breezy. Temperatures will respond to the sun and southerly winds.  Highs will be in the middle 70°s.

Regional Monday Max Temperature

We go even warmer Monday as as an area of low pressure develops in the Rocky Mountains.  This should lead to the warmest April 26 in 20 years as temperatures should easily reach the lower and middle 80°s.  A few upper 80°s will not surprise me as we have sunny skies.  Winds will increase significantly out
of the south/southwest.  Gusts 45-55 mph will be possible.

This is a classic setup where, from a forecasting standpoint, we can’t go warm enough with the forecast.  Stay tuned!

Have a great weekend!
