Some of the warmest weather of the month is headed this way early next week – but another Arctic front may be following on its heels.
• Get your outdoor chores done this weekend; an Arctic front might be here by the following weekend.
• Plan to play hooky in the coming week – it'll be golfing weather.
The Omaha area could see mostly sunny skies and highs around 40 degrees Monday through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
This weekend, sunshine and highs around 32 degrees are forecast for Sunday. Saturday will be colder and windier.
Bob Smerbeck, a meteorologist with AccuWeather, The World-Herald's weather consultant, said an Arctic front is projected to drop southward at the end of next week.
If that happens, temperatures during the weekend of Dec. 21-22 could top out in the teens or lower, he said. It's still a little early to speak with certainty, he said, but of the coming two weekends, this one looks to be the nicest.
