No student comes to Nebraska for the weather. Expect to being wearing a coat in the morning, a rain coat in the afternoon, and shorts in the evening. This combination can also vary from week to week, day to day, and possibly even hour to hour. The weather in Nebraska never stays the same for very long.
Unfortunately, there are usually some weather patterns you can count on. Summer is sizzling—it’s common for students to walk to their first week of classes in 100-degree heat. And winter is Arctic—one winter, Lincoln recorded 12 days of sub-zero temperatures. The best solution to Lincoln’s wide range of weather is to wake up in the morning prepared for anything. Always have a sweater for September and a pair of shorts for January because there’s no telling when you might need them.
