Lincoln weather forecast for Monday
LINCOLN, Nebraska – A powerful weather system is approaching in from the west, and it is going to cause our previously calm weather pattern to change into one that is more active. Over the following few days, this system will bring gloomy and windy conditions, as well as the possibility of measurable precipitation.
As a powerful storm system moves into the 1011 region on Monday, we can expect widespread fog, cloudy skies, windy weather, and a probability of rain and snow. All of these characteristics will be present. The highs will only be in the 40s and possibly the low 50s. The winds will be coming from the southeast at 15-25 miles per hour, with gusts reaching up to 35-40 miles per hour. As a result, it might not be a bad idea to bring in unsecured Christmas decorations that were displayed outside.
There is a chance of patchy to widespread fog across the state for the most of the 1011 region on Monday morning, and it might stick around through the afternoon and evening as well. In several parts of western and central Nebraska, there will be dense fog advisories and freezing fog advisories in place until midday. Driving conditions are going to be extremely hazardous in these locations as a result of the very low visibility and the possibility of ice on bridges. However, because fog is likely to be present over the state, drivers need to exercise extreme caution when on the roads.
In addition to the fog, today is going to be gloomy, and there is a possibility that it will rain or snow. Across the state of Nebraska on Monday morning and continuing through the middle of the afternoon, isolated to scattered light rain showers are probable. There is a remote possibility that some regions could get freezing drizzle in the morning, but it is expected that there will be very little accumulation if any at all. Between the middle of the afternoon and the early evening, there is an increased likelihood of rain that is both more broad and more intense in its nature. As we approach into the overnight, we will continue to see widespread rainfall that is moderate in intensity, and there is a chance that we may hear a few rumbles of thunder. That rain will transition into snow in the late evening hours of Monday, notably in the Panhandle and western regions of Nebraska, because temperatures will have begun to drop at that point. A wind gust of up to 35 miles per hour is expected to accompany these conditions, so keep that in mind. Due to the fact that this storm system is expected to remain in place for the foreseeable future, Blizzard Warnings will be issued for the northwest and the Panhandle beginning late on Monday and continuing until early Thursday morning. A Winter Storm Watch is also going to go into place for parts of the west and the Panhandle within the same time frame as the other watch. There is a chance of localized fog throughout the evening hours as well.
On Tuesday, we should see conditions quite similar to what we saw yesterday; however, because a cold front will be linked with the storm system, temperatures will range from the high 20s to the upper 50s. There will be continued windy conditions, but they will be significantly more windy… southeasterly continuous winds between 20 and 25 mph, with gusts reaching 40 to 45 mph.
Regarding the possibility of precipitation, there will be a chance of snow in the Panhandle and western Nebraska on Tuesday during the day and into the overnight hours. The possibility of snow will become widespread across central Nebraska during the late evening hours and will remain there throughout the night. Before we get a break from the activity in the late afternoon, widespread rain and possibly isolated thunderstorms are anticipated to continue into the middle of the afternoon in the central and eastern areas. There will be a low likelihood of precipitation throughout the overnight hours and into Wednesday across eastern Nebraska.
Temperatures will drop into the 30s and the mid to high 20s towards the end of the week as a result of a storm system that will be moving through the 1011 region on Tuesday along with a cold front that will be connected with it. There is a remote possibility that it will snow as the system is passing through on Wednesday and Thursday, but the forecast calls for it to stop snowing by the end of the week.
