Record Warmth is Possible Tomorrow, but Some Rain/Snow is On the Horizon Too

Cooling back down for the weekend
Posted at 5:26 AM, Dec 06, 2023

Today is the beginning of our short, but big warm-up for the middle part of the week. Highs this afternoon will top out in the middle 50s, or around 15 degrees above our average high for early December.

The warm-up continues Thursday with highs in the low 60s and mostly sunny skies. Omaha could break the current record high for the date of 61, set in 1918.

This time of year, big warm-ups are very sort lived. A cold front will arrive Thursday night, cooling us off into the weekend.

Friday starts with a lot of sunshine, but clouds move in during the second half of the day as we only warm in the lower 50s. Most of us stay dry, but there could be some light rain or a few snowflakes southeast of Omaha late Friday night and overnight, mainly southeast of the Metro.

As the night cools off, some of that rain south of I-80 could turn into some light snow. Any accumulations at this point look minimal, and the system pulls away by Saturday afternoon.

The wind lightens up Sunday, but we'll still be near 40 with on and off sunshine.

Monday will be a touch warmer with mid 40s. Another cooldown arrives Tuesday, putting our highs in the upper 30s.
