Weekend forecast includes passing cold front leading to cooler temperatures S
Overall, the weekend should be relatively nice considering it is getting to be late November. A cold front passing through Nebraska will bring cooler temperatures for the second half of the weekend, but nothing terribly “cold”.
Clouds will remain in the skies over southeast Nebraska Saturday. However, even with mostly cloudy skies, and winds shifting from the south-southwest to the northeast, temperatures will climb back to the middle 50°s – four to five degrees above normal.
Cooler air will settle in during the day Sunday. Temperatures will top out in the middle to upper 40°s under partly cloudy skies. Winds will also increase through the day, becoming breezy for the afternoon.
If you have plans on putting up outdoor Christmas decorations this weekend I would pick Saturday over Sunday.
GETTING A BREAK FROM HEATING BILLS
November continues to run “warm”. Through November 19, thirteen days have gone in the weather books as “above normal” in Lincoln. That works out to 68% of the month. Overall, November is running 4.1° above normal per day.
Cooler temperatures are expected several days next week, but it also appears there will be a couple days above normal as well.
Long range data suggests we end the month on a cool note. However, the same long range data suggests December opens warm. With any luck, we will notice a break in heating bills due to the above normal November and start to December. Stay tuned!
