Cloud cover has plagued Lincoln today. The cloud cover is late to clear out, and high temperatures suffered as a result. Temperatures were in the 50s for most of us today with a few lucky spots out west managing to get into the 60s.
At some point tonight, the cloud cover should begin to thin. We won’t completely get rid of the clouds, but the clearing that we do see should be enough to drops lows into the low to mid-40s. Cloud cover starts to spill into the area tomorrow morning. Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies tomorrow, with a chance for an isolated shower west of Lincoln and perhaps a rumble of thunder.
Rain chances really start to ramp up overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning. The rain could stick with us through Sunday afternoon.
There is a fly in the ointment for Memorial Day’s forecast. Models have been hinting at a soggy Memorial Day over the past few days. Some of the latest model guidance has shifted the track of Monday’s storm system farther to the south more recently. If this is the case, we may see a lot less rainfall for the holiday.
We still have a few days to iron out the details, we’ll keep the chance for rain in the forecast for now. As we head into next week, things look a lot warmer. Perhaps we may even reach 90 degrees by next weekend.
