Skies became overcast Tuesday afternoon, but even with the added cloud cover temperatures found their way back to the 90°s for some. Lincoln reached 90° for the 23rd day this year. The city is six days ahead of the 30-year normal to date.
Clouds will remain in place overnight as a warm front begins to lift through the region. Because of that, temperatures will not fall as much as they have the last two mornings. Lows will be in the upper 60°s to lower 70°s Wednesday morning.
Showers and thunderstorms will begin to move in to central Nebraska after midnight Wednesday morning. They will continue moving east, and eventually, east-southeast by early Wednesday morning. Some of the thunderstorms could produce a strong wind gust. Storms should arrive in the Lincoln area in time for the morning commute.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue to move through the area Wednesday morning before becoming widely scattered by afternoon.
Temperatures will be seasonal with highs in the upper 80°s to lower 90°s. It will also be breezy with winds gusting to 25 mph out of the south.
The chance for rain increases again Wednesday evening through early Thursday morning as a cold front slides through southeast Nebraska.
