Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


Unseasonably mild weather will continue for the better part of the next week with a few small exceptions. An upper-level ridge of high pressure will continue to bring mild-to-warm late October weather for most of the Central Plains today. By Wednesday, the ridge moves east and is replaced by a trough of low pressure which will draw moisture back into the region and lead to some shower and thunderstorm development. The rain chance will continue into Wednesday night into Thursday morning, especially for eastern Nebraska.

Following that mid-week precipitation chance high pressure will return to the Midwest. This sets the stage for more mild-to-warm and mainly dry late-October weather. Highs from Friday through Sunday are expected to return to the low-to-mid 70s. Right now those days are expected to be dry as well.


9:00 AM: Mainly sunny. Temperature, 46 to 51. Light south winds.

NOON: Sunny and a little breezy. Temperature, 63 to 67. Southeast winds at 5 to 15 mph.

3:00 PM: Mostly sunny and breezy. Temperature, 72 to 77. Southeast winds at 10 to 20 mph.

6:00 PM: Mostly sunny and breezy. Temperature, 65 to 70. Southeast winds at 5 to 15 mph.

9:00 PM: Partly cloudy. Temperature, 55 to 60. Southeast winds at 5 to 15 mph.

TODAY: Mostly sunny and continued very mild. Turning breezy in the afternoon. Highs in the low to mid 70s. South-southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph...increasing to 15 to 25 mph by afternoon.

TONIGHT: Clear to partly cloudy early in the evening...then increasing cloudiness later. A bit breezy and a bit milder. Lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. South-southeast winds of 8 to 18 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms. Still mild for late-October...with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. South-southeast winds of 15 to 25 mph.
