Good morning! 🙂
Before we talk about Nebraska weather, just a little bit about Dorian. I know we have a lot of people from Florida that are going to be headed to Lincoln, and Dorian "may" have a significant impact on Florida. I know most Floridians have their go to people for tropical information as well as the obvious NHC, but I'm tracking Dorian as well with frequent updates throughout the day. So if you or someone you know has any interest near the east coast of Florida, you can follow my updates here. Newest updates are the last comments.
There is still a chance for rain Friday although the best chance may be on Saturday. Notice the highlight in red. Let's hope the trend continues. That would also indicate warmer/hotter temperatures.
.LONG TERM...(Friday through Monday)
Issued at 200 AM CDT Tue Aug 27 2019
A better defined shortwave moving out of the Rockies Friday into
Saturday is progged to bring more showers/thunderstorms to the
Plains as it interacts with a remnant surface front. More cloud
cover and cooler temperatures should accompany the rain chances,
with afternoon highs low 70s Friday and Saturday. Forecaster
confidence in cooler, cloudier and damp weather Friday into
Saturday is moderate.
With low confidence, the model consensus suggests a drying trend
from Sunday into early next week as an upper level ridge tries to
build over the Southern Plains.
Here's a look at the chances for rain/temps/everything/ on an hour by hour basis for Friday and Saturday, at least for now. Of course, it is subject to change if it wants to. 😉
Thursday through Saturday morning
Saturday through Monday morning
And of course... the official NWS forecast
Luckily for Lincoln, the current bullseye for rainfall is over Kansas although this is what Lincoln may see through the 8am, Sunday. And again, that is if it doesn't decide to change. 😉 As you can also see... it's not very far away. This rainfall is mainly Friday and Saturday.
We'll know more about the odds for precip tomorrow, although those meteograms along with the precip totals give you a general idea of the rainfall. The Omaha NWS apparently doesn't like putting those percentages out too far ahead of time. 🙂
Have a great day!
