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.
