Sunshine and warm stays through the weekend
Storm chances, cooler air return next week
We are used to sunny and warm weather, and through the weekend, that trend will stick around. Average highs are falling into the low- to mid-70s as we start October, but our actual highs will stay well into the 80s until the start of next week. A dual-high pressure setup will be in charge of our weather, which is giving us sunny skies. Plus, a southerly wind, that at times can become quite breezy, is keeping us warm. Thursday and Friday we will have complete sunshine, with highs in the upper 80s east and the mid-80s west. Saturday we will have breezy conditions in Central NE, otherwise sunny to mostly sunny skies will be the story with highs in the upper 80s to near 90.
The jetstream will remain to our north, and that’s the track the lows will continue to take. So all of the moisture and the cool air will stay in the U.S. and Canadian Prairies well to the north of us as we continue to have sunshine and warmth. Sunday we’ll have mostly sunny skies and it will be windy; highs in the mid- to upper 80s. The cold front to our north finally enters our forecast area by the start of next week. Monday we’ll have an increase in the clouds with a chance of PM showers/t-storms; highs will be near 80 west and the mid-70s east. Tuesday we’ll keep partly cloudy skies with a chance of storms; highs fall to the low- to mid-70s. We dry out for Wednesday with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, but it will be cooler than we have been with highs in the mid- to upper 70s.
