LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - As is appropriate for a season of transition...a highly “changeable” weather pattern develops over the next week.

We’ll begin with summer-like warmth early...both Monday and Tuesday may make runs at 90° in the Lincoln area...with parts of western and central Nebraska a near-certainty to do so. A warm front sliding across the state will not only lead to a significant mid-September warm-up, but may also combine with some weak disturbances aloft to provide small shower-and-thunderstorm chances for Monday night-into-Tuesday morning....and then again Tuesday night-into-Wednesday. Additional shower-and-thunderstorm chances will be found later this week as an upper-level trough in the western part of the US slowly makes its way east...actually INCREASING our rain chances from Thursday all the way through the upcoming weekend...with temperatures cooling back to more seasonal levels as well.
