LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - There were a wide range of temperatures across the area for the first day of 2021. Morning low temperatures for January 1st were in the single digits to low 20s. Afternoon high temperatures for January 1st were in the mid 20s to mid 40s. It looks like the wide range of temperatures across the state will continue this weekend.

Areas of fog will be possible across much of Central and Eastern Nebraska Saturday morning and then again late Saturday night into Sunday morning. The fog could be dense (one-quarter of a mile visibility or less) in some locations. With temperatures below freezing, freezing fog is possible so there could be additional slick spots. It should be mostly sunny Saturday afternoon in Central and Western Nebraska, but Eastern Nebraska will likely remain partly to mostly cloudy. Sunday looks to be very similar to Saturday. High temperatures on Saturday will range from the upper 20s in parts of far Eastern Nebraska to the mid 40s in parts of Western Nebraska. High temperatures on Sunday will range from the low 30s in parts of far Eastern Nebraska to the upper 40s in parts of Western Nebraska.
An upper level high pressure ridge looks to be move into the area Monday and Tuesday. This will lead to warmer temperatures for the beginning of next week. High temperatures both days should be in the low 40s to low 50s for much of the area.
Our next chance of precipitation looks to arrive for the middle of next week. At this time there is a chance of rain and snow Wednesday becoming a chance of snow late Wednesday into Thursday. Stay tuned to the forecast in the days ahead.
