On this last day of September, temps locally only dipped down into the low 50's this morning IMBY, but places just west of me into the low/mid 40's.  Some upper 30's showing up near Burlington, WI and across the lake near Benton Harbor and Kalamazoo.  Radiational cooling did the trick with clear skies and calm winds.  #Refreshing

At the Lincoln airport, the month of Aug- I mean September finished with a mean temperature of 70.3, which is 4.3 above the normal September mean temperature of 66. The coldest minimum temperature recorded was 43, which occurred on the 6th. The warmest minimum temperature was 75, on the 22nd. The warmest maximum temperature was 97 on the 22nd, and the coldest maximum temperature was 64, just three days later on the 25th. The total precipitation for the month was 1.85", most of which fell on the 24th and the 25th. While we are not experiencing the same drought conditions some are in the Midwest, that was still 1.17" below normal. One record was tied during the month, that being the record warm minimum of 75 on the 22nd. The last time that occurred was 1937. No new records were set for the month.

Likely we see those temps opposite that mid-winter is my gut feeling.
