A little rough weather moving through Lincoln this morning, so not a very good day to be outdoors. And that same scenario may hold true for Thursday as a cold front pushes through the state bringing showers and thunderstorms along with cooler temperatures.
The radar this morning isn't looking too good right now. I don't like the hook in the storm to the north of Lincoln, and the storm to the south certainly has some hail in it.
To the thinking for Thursday through Saturday is below.
By Thursday, the Ontario/Great Lakes low is forecast to lift
northeast in response to an upstream perturbation moving into the
upper MS Valley. In the low levels, a cold front will advance
south through the northern Plains toward the area. A warmer low-
level air mass is expected to develop ahead of the front,
supporting highs on Thursday in the 80's to around 90. Current
indications are that the front will move through our area Thursday
night before stalling across KS and MO on Friday into the
weekend. The presence of that boundary will contribute to a chance
of showers and thunderstorms from Thursday night into Saturday.
Afternoon temperatures will fall back into the 70's on Friday into
The exact timing and placement of the rain will not be known for several more days, but you're starting get the idea. Just how far south that front decides to stall will help to determine the rain placement and chances.
