Upper level energy pushing out of the Southern Rockies will phase with a northern disturbance bringing rain out of Southern Kansas, northward. Showers are expected to roll into the Metro after 3 AM with areas south even experiencing a rumble of thunder or two. Showers will scatter out by the afternoon leaving around 2-3 tenths in the rain gauge. Clouds will begin to break up late afternoon with skies clearing out Monday night.
If we can get the skies to clear mid to last afternoon, temperatures should push into the upper 60s, threatening Monday's record of 67 degrees set back in 1930. Records could again fall on Tuesday with lower 70s expected.
Record high temperatures fell on Sunday as the thermometer found 70+ degree temperatures yet again. Omaha reached 71 breaking the old mark of 70 going back to 1930. Lincoln's 73 degree high broke the 1996 mark of 71 degrees.
Snow lovers may have their "Wish Cast" fulfilled at the end of the week as a stronger system arrives by Friday. Precipitation will begin as rain Thursday evening then convert over to snow during the overnight, with accumulations possible before it wraps up in the early afternoon. We will be watching how the storm evolves and tracks before posting precise amounts. Temperatures will go from the 50s Thursday into the 30s Friday and Saturday highs. Saturday morning will be in the low 20s.
