Monday Forecast: More clouds and cool weather to start the week
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Fairly quiet weather is expected as we head into the day on Monday as we should start the week with more clouds and cool weather.
Temperatures should be a bit warmer by Monday afternoon for central and eastern Nebraska with highs warming up into the upper 50s to low 60s. More unseasonably cool weather is forecast for western Nebraska where temperatures are only expected to reach the upper 40s to upper 50s.
Variable cloudiness is expected to start the day on Monday, but skies by Monday afternoon should become partly to mostly cloudy across the state. Mainly dry weather is expected for central and eastern Nebraska, but western Nebraska could see some areas of light rain throughout the day on Monday with rain potentially expanding into parts of central and eastern Nebraska into the day on Tuesday.
Temperatures will remain cooler than average for Lincoln through the first half of the week before warmer weather arrives for the second half of the week and into next weekend. While Monday should be dry, Tuesday will see mostly cloudy skies with a 20% to 30% chance for light rain. Wednesday looks to see a bit more sunshine, but still with a small chance for some scattered light rain. Our best chances for rain over the course of the next week will come from Thursday and into the weekend as several disturbances are forecast to swing through the area.
