A chilly start to Monday is expected to give way to a string of mild fall days, according to a meteorologist with AccuWeather.
“Monday we're expecting a dry, chilly start that is not unusual for this time of year,” Dan Pydynowski said. “We will start out around 30, but we're expecting the high to push up around 50, with a good deal of sunshine and not a lot of wind.”
A high-pressure system is expected to sit over Nebraska and western Iowa through Wednesday, said the meteorologist with The World-Herald's weather consultant. A dry wind from the south should raise temperatures into the upper 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday, he said.
“Things are looking pretty good for the first few days of the week before a cold front slides down from the north or northwest on Thursday,” Pydynowski said.
Thursday won't be all that bad, though. The high is expected to dip into the upper 40s. On Friday, Pydynowski said, a storm system will slide by to the south of the Omaha metropolitan area, bringing chances of rain and even some sleet or snow.
“We're looking at a weather pattern that is pretty average for mid-November,” he said.
