There has been a lack of sunshine around southeast Nebraska this month. Only 52% of possible sunshine has been able to reach the ground in Lincoln. Looking back at each month this year, this month has had the lowest percentage followed by January.
Gray skies will continue to be the rule for much of the next 7-10 days. We will get a few breaks in the clouds Wednesday, allowing the the bright round object in the sky to appear. However, even with the sun breaking through the clouds, temperatures are going to remain 5° to 8° below normal with highs in the lower to middle 60°s.
Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy skies will allow temperatures to drop to the middle 30°s to lower 40°s early Wednesday morning. Because of that, a Frost Advisory has been issued for several counties in central and northeastern Nebraska. The advisory will be in effect from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
We are moving in to a pattern where there is a daily chance for rain for at least 8 of the next 10 days. It starts Wednesday with an isolated chance for a showers, especially west of Lincoln.
Thursday brings a chance for scattered showers, mainly over northern counties of the Channel 8 viewing area. Morning rain will be possible Friday and again Saturday. Then scattered showers each day Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. A chance for a thunderstorm is possible next Wednesday.
