Sunny skies, climbing temps on tap for this week


Skies will be partly sunny Thursday in Oklahoma City with a high temperature near 69 degrees.

Forecasters are calling for the possibility of light snow in Lincoln on Sunday, with chances of rain, sleet and freezing rain thrown in for good measure.

Little to no ice is expected, possibly a glaze on elevated surfaces along/ south of MO/ AR border.

An area of snow will move through Kentucky during the day Saturday. That cloud cover will keep high temperatures stuck in the 40s, even with a breezy south and southeast wind at 10 to 20 miles per hour. If the storm system speeds up, we'll need to watch roads since morning temperatures will be below freezing.

With different areas of the county still under water, residents should prepare for more bad weather over the next week. So far, snow accumulations look to be at around one inch or less, but we'll continue to keep you updated. Temperatures will top out later in the afternoon to early evening in the low to mid 30s. "The high Saturday is forecast to be 36 with a low of 22". Expect wind chills in the low to mid 20's late this evening.

Light snow will fall across the Northern Plains and Midwest through Monday. Snow levels will initially be quite high but should lower overnight. We will likely have very nice days on Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs approaching 60, before some more unsettled conditions cloud the forecast for the weekend.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 37.

Looking ahead, temperatures for the week ahead are expected to remain below or at normal, Avery said.
