Remaining mild for a few days
After a very mild weekend, the comfortable airmass will remain on President’s Day. The day is characterized by a mix of sun and clouds, with temperatures initially in the 20s to 30s. However, we will quickly climb into the 40s and 50s as the day progresses.
We will probably top near 55° in Lincoln. Most areas should be able to hit the 50s on Monday, which is about 10-15° above average for this time of year.
Tuesday is also fine, but Wednesday may change. Snow will cover much of northern and western Nebraska Tuesday night and early Wednesday. As we head into Wednesday, rain and freezing rain will be a possibility in Southeast Nebraska.
While snow will be primarily a problem in the north, ice may be a bigger concern in the south. Southeast Nebraska will be in a prime location for a dry slot moving up Wednesday, and that could be a saving grace in terms of ice accumulation.
We will monitor this system closely in the coming days. Behind it, temperatures will plummet. We will go from the 50s for highs on Monday and Tuesday, to the teens for highs by Thursday.
