Although our weather is finally drying out and the sun keeps shining, flooding problems and concerns are continuing through St. Patrick’s Day weekend and into the week ahead.

Many rivers in eastern Nebraska are reaching record high levels with this flooding. Some rivers and creeks have crested already while others will be cresting through the weekend. Even after they crest, it will take a while for levels to return to normal.

Thankfully our temperatures stay on the warmer side in the week ahead with mostly dry conditions. In fact, we could be experiencing highs in the low 60s by the end of next week.

Finally, our temperature trends are in the warmer than average heading towards the end of March, which is a welcome sight after we spent so long in the deep freeze.

On the flip side, trends point to more moisture heading our way during the same time frame. Which of course is not what anyone needs right now with flooding still an issue into next week and accounting for the time it will take for things to return to a semi-normal state. A few isolated showers are possible on Tuesday, with more chances of rain around the weekend of the 23rd.
