LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – A short-term warming trend started on Sunday and will continue until Monday.
Mostly sunny skies and a southwest wind will work hard to warm up the temperatures on Sunday! High temperatures will reach 40 degrees in the east and 50 degrees in the central and western regions. Although temperatures will be “warmer” than Saturday, there will be a chill due to the wind. Winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. It is important to note that due to low relative humidity and high winds, fire danger will be high to very high in eastern Nebraska this afternoon.
Some clouds will move in Sunday night and Monday morning, resulting in mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Winds will continue to be out of the southwest, but at 15 to 25 mph with gusts as high as 35 mph. Low temperatures will only drop from 20 to mid 30 degrees. It will be “warmest” in the southeast, where there will be partly cloudy skies, and temperatures will be about average for this time of year.
Warmer conditions are in store for most areas on Monday as a warm front moves through the 1011 area. Unfortunately, a cold front will quickly follow a warm front and cause temperatures to cool in the northern part of the state. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s to mid 60s. It will be breezy early in the day with southwest winds 10-15 mph and 30 mph…winds decreasing during the afternoon. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.
