Warming up for Labor Day with no rain in sight
Highs across the state varied by about 20 degrees on Sunday. Eastern Nebraska saw mid 80-degree temperatures while the western portions saw triple digits. Higher dew points today in Lincoln compared to yesterday with some cumulus clouds popping up were the only differences from Saturday to Sunday.
Lows started in the upper 40s and low 50s Sunday morning, giving many a taste of more fall-like sweater weather. Partly cloudy skies can be expected in the overnight and early morning hours of Monday, but lows will not be as cool as Sunday morning, nearing the upper 50s and low 60s in some spots.
Labor Day will be a pleasant day with decreasing clouds from the morning into the afternoon time frame. Winds will be light and out of the southeast as highs reach the mid and upper 80s.
Looking into the next several days, rain chances are limited in the forecast. According to the Climate Prediction Center, the next week shows below normal precipitation amounts for Nebraska, specifically the eastern and northeastern portions.
