SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2016
With respect to next weeks potential for winter weather we will have to put that on the back burner and focus on this weekend. Saturday we will stick with mostly cloudy to cloudy conditions with precipitation chances increasing through the day. On Saturday there will be the potential for those across southern Nebraska to see a wintry mix of rain, snow, freezing rain and drizzle through the day. We could see some accumulation on grassy surfaces up to half of an inch to inch in Lincoln, with around a couple of tenths looking much more likely as we will see rain with it making it difficult to accumulate. Sunday looks to be a rebound day and really will be mild on top of mostly sunny skies. So take advantage of it because things will change headed into the work week. Through a large part of next week we will see breezy conditions with above average temperatures on Monday. A colder air mass will move in behind a cold front on Monday and this will begin our precipitation chances on Monday night. As of right now a rain snow mix from Monday night looks to change over to snow into Tuesday morning, but the amounts still look to be a big question mark. At this point it doesn't hint at being a significant winter storm. What is a little more certain is that colder temperatures are right around the corner. Highs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look to be in the 20s with overnight lows dropping to the single digits. So snow or no snow with these breezy conditions it will certainly feel like winter as wind chill values will have us feeling like the temperature is in the teens if not lower at times.
SATURDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs in the lower 40s to upper 30s. South winds of 5 to 15 mph. There will be a chance for a rain-or-snow shower beginning around midday and lasting through Saturday evening.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 40s to around 50.
