Monday will be a mostly sunny day with occasional partly cloudy skies in some western parts of the state. However, despite the sunshine, the day will be cold and windy. High temperatures in most of the Northeast will struggle to get above 40 degrees, while the rest of us will see temperatures in the 50s and a few in the Southwest in the low 60s. Windy conditions will remain for another day, with winds mostly out of the north at 10-15 mph and up to 25 mph. Now, thanks to that daytime breeze, it can be a few degrees cooler. With the daytime chills…comes COLD overnight lows. Thanks to clear skies and light winds, lows will drop into the TEENS and 20s. We could break some low temperature records, including here in Lincoln. Lincoln’s forecast low was 18 degrees and the previous record was 21 degrees set in 1972. Monday night and Tuesday morning will definitely be chilly and may be the first night where you actually need to turn on the heat.
