Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


Don't get too attached to the conditions we had today because our weekend will be a complete turn around. Though north winds helped to keep highs in the 60s for the majority of the state today... Nebraska will be falling asleep to the tune of a warmer southerly flow. Warmer temps not quite here for the morning... Saturday morning starting off in the middle 40s, but those south winds, breezy at times, will raise the mercury to the lower 80s for the Lincoln area... mid to upper 80s for the Sandhills. Have you seen this commercial? "But wait! There's more!" On Sunday, still with the aid of southerly flow, temps will rise to the lower 90s for Eastern Nebraska and middle to upper 90s for portions of the Southwest. Not only will that be a two-day temperature difference of about 25 degrees for some cities... lower 90s for Lincoln would be a record high for the Capital City, which has a record high of 89 degrees set back in 1989 for October 11th.

A few fronts will knock temps back down for the work week, but sill expecting above average 70s for the next handful of days. Wondering where the mention of rain is? Don't wonder too much... not anticipating rain for any of the next seven days.


6:00 PM: Partly cloudy. Temperature, 63 to 65. East-northeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.

9:00 PM: Partly cloudy. Temperature, 55 to 57. East-southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy in the evening...then clearing and not quite as cool. Lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s. South winds of 5 to 10 mph.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and much warmer once again. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. South winds of 10 to 20 mph...with gusts to 25 or 30 mph at times.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Continued breezy winds out of the southwest 10 to 20 mph... with gusts to 25 to 30 mph at times.
