LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Cool and very comfortable weather is on tap as we head into the day on Monday as cooler and drier air will filter into the area behind a cold front that has pushed through the state on Sunday. Monday afternoon we should see comfortably mild high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s with north and northwest winds at 10 to 15 MPH. Partly sunny skies expected with a small chance for a pop up sprinkle or brief rain shower.

Adding to the very comfortable weather on Monday will be dew point temperatures that are forecast to continue to fall as drier air filters into the state. Look for dew points by Monday afternoon into the 40s for most of us.

Sadly, the cooler temperatures don’t stick around long as temperatures by Tuesday are forecast to jump back to the upper 80s with highs back in the mid 90s for Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures should then fall back to the mid 80s for Friday and into next weekend. Our best rain chances likely come into the day on Thursday and Friday as a cold front moves through the state.

The cool down won't last long. Hot and humid weather returns midweek
