First Warning Forecast Unseasonably warm under a mix of sun and clouds
01 March, 2018, 18:39
Overview: "So far February 2018 has been the second wettest February on record in Lexington, with 10.08" of rain.
Rain chances during the day will be around 90% and around 100% tonight. All day we will see sunny skies and light winds out of the southwest, a picture flawless day to get outside to the park or surrounding trails for a walk or a bike ride. It should stay rain-free today, with just the slightest chance of a passing sprinkle or shower this evening.The clouds will continue tonight as we get our next rain maker from the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow.
Colder air will pour in behind the storm on gusty northwest winds.
Tuesday will be partly sunny and a tad warmer, with highs in the upper-40s.
Temperatures in the mid -50s Tuesday. We aren't looking at thunderstorms or terribly heavy rain but off and on showers. I think most of us will avoid the rain Tuesday with the best chances for showers after 9 pm and continuing overnight. Moderate to heavy rainfall will be possible, which may lead to more flooding. Rain starts to move in Thursday night from the initial storm moving out of the OH valley.
In the Omaha area on Monday, look for sunny skies and a high around 55. Sunday night will be mainly clear and low temperatures will drop into the mid to upper 20s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures continue, with a high of 52 degrees.
Temperatures will dip into the low 50s for the weekend, which sounds much cooler, but it's actually normal for this time of year and for the first week of March.
