Mallory’s Weekend Forecast - Wind Advisory in effect Sunday
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - We started Saturday on a very mild note, with temperatures in the 50s. Temperatures at Eppley Airfield only dropped to 54° this morning, breaking the previous record WARM low of 53° - set in 1977. Lows this morning were much closer to our normal highs for this time of year!
Outside of some cloud cover Saturday morning, plentiful sunshine returned for the afternoon. Highs soared back into the mid to upper-70s, with southerly winds gusting up to 40 mph.
Mostly clear and windy conditions took us into the overnight hours, with lows just back in the 50s! We’ll warm into the low to mid-70s again Sunday, even higher gusts up to 50 mph possible! So while temperatures will be very pleasant, the wind will not be. Because of this, a Wind Advisory is in effect from 9 AM to 6 PM.
Winds stay high for the start of the workweek, with rain returning to the forecast Monday! I think the Omaha Metro will likely see some drizzle in the morning, with better rain chances increasing from northwest to southeast during the afternoon, evening, and overnight hours.
Some thunderstorms are possible as well, as a cold front pushes into the area by Monday evening. This front will cause temperatures to plummet into the 30s overnight, with highs Tuesday just around 40°.
With moisture lingering, rain will transition into a wintry mix and/or snow during the day Tuesday, before the system exits Tuesday evening. Best chance for accumulating snow remains north of I-80. Slick spots are possible, but warm road temperatures should help!
Highs in the 40s and lower-50s take us through the rest of the extended forecast.
