Lincoln, Nebraska

This evening, we’ll head down to the capital of Nebraska and the home of the Cornhuskers. Surely, there is nothing interesting coming to the Plains in May, is there?

At 954PM, Lincoln was reporting clear skies and a still warm temperature of 76 degrees. There were a few lingering thunderstorms just outside the eastern portion of Nebraska, but they were tied with a feature moving into the Great Lakes and a bit of weak ridging was settling in for the night. That is to say, Lincoln is in the clear until at least through tomorrow.
A broad upper level trough moving into the Pacific Northwest will help generate a prevailing westerly flow across the Rockies, and a developing lee trough by late in the day Thursday. A warm front will lift through eastern Nebraska, with showers and thunderstorms a possibility until late into the day. This system may ultimately lead to some severe storms, but that particular weather will be mostly found in central and western Nebraska.
