Rising temperatures ahead of the big fall…

LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – We’re set for a complex weather system this week as a warm front moves through the region Tuesday through Wednesday and a strong cold front moves in Thursday. Therefore, in the first half of the week, the low and high temperatures will be much higher than the average, wind and rain and showers and thunderstorms are expected. As a cold front moves through on Thursday, things will turn cold and windy…

On Tuesday, it will be mostly partly cloudy, and rain is expected in the northern and eastern districts. Scattered showers and possible thunderstorms in eastern Nebraska from the morning to early afternoon. The day will be light, with a southeast wind between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts as high as 30 to 35 mph. In most cases, temperatures will be significantly above average! Highs will be in the mid 50s to mid 70s. It will be coldest in the Northeast, warming into the 60s and eventually moving into the mid-70s in the Southwest.

We will continue to see mostly cloudy skies overnight and a southerly wind…this will help keep the low to high average temperatures across much of the southeastern part of the state. Low temperatures in the southeastern half will be in the mid 50s to low 60s. In Lincoln, we may break the record for the warmest low temperature, which was set in 1999, at 52 degrees. However, it will be noticeably colder in the Northwest and Panhandle… as we see a strong cold front move through the region. A cold front will stall in central Nebraska on Wednesday before pushing across the state late Thursday afternoon. However, it will be a cool night for the Northwest in the 20s and 30s.

Wednesday will bring even warmer temperatures and even stronger winds. High temperatures in the southeastern half of the state will range from the mid to upper 70s in the upper 20s. In Lincoln we have another shot at breaking the 1999 record of 74 degrees. Northwest areas will be in the upper 40s to lower 60s due to a cold front. You’ll need to keep those hats on and protect your outdoor decorations because it’s going to be a windy day. The wind is blowing from the south at 15-30 m/s and the intensity is 35-45 m/s. Partly cloudy to partly cloudy skies across the region. Scattered showers and possible thunderstorms will develop in north central and northeast Nebraska from early afternoon to evening.

We will continue to have windy and cloudy weather Wednesday night though. A cold front will dip a little further to the southeast, so temperatures will drop into the low 20s to low 60s…coldest in the northwest half of the state…warmest in the southeast half. However, Lincoln has another chance to set a new record low temperature. Parts of eastern Nebraska will also have isolated showers and thunderstorms overnight.
