Wednesday Evening Weather Update; October 7, 2020
TONIGHT: Clear skies overnight. Smoke from wildfires in southern Wyoming and northern Colorado will make for an “orange” sunrise. Temperatues will drop to the lower to middle 50°s. Lincoln Low Temperature: 52°
THURSDAY: Hazy skies to start. Skies will become more sunny by early afternoon. Warm and breezy. Temperatures topping out in the middle 80°s. Winds will turn out of the south/southeast 10-17 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Lincoln High Temperature: 84°
This feels anything but early October weather. The temperature topped out at 86° Tuesday and Wednesday. That is the normal high temperature in July.
Assuming my forecast verifies, this will be the warmest October 6 through October 11 since 1947 (73 years)! This will also go in to the record books as the 6th warmest October 6-11 since 1887.
