Monday Forecast: Increasing clouds and seasonal
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The first half of the new week will start off with quiet conditions and a consistent weather pattern. As we head into the second half, we will see variable temperatures and a few small chances for light snow.
Mix of sunshine and clouds Monday afternoon and evening hours. High temperatures should hit the low to mid 30s, which is near seasonal for most areas this time of year. Winds will be light between 5-15 mph. As we head into the evening and into the overnight, we will see partly to mostly cloudy skies take over the region and low temperatures will fall to the teens to mid 20s.
The cloud cover will stick around for Tuesday, and we will see similar or slightly warmer temperatures. It will be a partly to mostly cloudy day with high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. Winds will be from the southwest and remain light. However, a weak cold front will move through southeastward the state on Tuesday, so winds will switch from southwest to north/northwest over the course of the day.
The weak cold front will result in cooler temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday. However, temperatures will rebound on Friday before another front rolls through and knocks us down into the 30s to TEENS for the weekend. Unfortunately, the extended forecast is also looking like temperatures will be well below average for the very end of January and start of February. In terms of precipitation, we will have a few small chances for flurries to light snow Wednesday through Sunday.
All in all, a consistent weather pattern will last with us through Wednesday and then we see a few weak disturbances that will cause more variable temperatures through the end of the week.
