Forecast for Tuesday: A taste of summer heat combined with windy weather
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) – Plenty of sunshine, warm weather, and wind or breeze expected Tuesday through Thursday. However, dry, warm and windy weather will create fire hazard concerns until Thursday.
Our Tuesday will be very similar to summer with sunshine and warm temperatures. The highs will rise to the mid and above the 80s. Those 80s are long overdue… the last time Lincoln had an 80s fever was on October 23rd last year! However, it will be a breezy or windy day. The wind will be southerly at a speed of 15-25 m/s, with gusts up to 30-35 m/s. The combination of low relative humidity, warm temperatures and dry conditions will create a high fire risk in Region 1011. Red flag warnings will be in effect throughout the day Tuesday. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
