30+ MPH WIND GUST POSSIBLE SATURDAY

After a week of sunny, warm, and calm weather, our temperatures will begin a downward trend beginning Saturday as a cold front passes through the area not only dropping temperatures, but also bringing with it a chance of rain.

Friday night into Saturday is going to be quite mild with lows only reaching the middle 60s. Winds will still be strong out the south at 20 miles per hour with gusts upwards of 30 miles per hour possible. The first half of the night should be dry, however some popup showers or thundershowers are possible after 11pm.

An isolated storm is also possible heading into Saturday morning. The best chance for more areas to see rainfall is Saturday afternoon as the cold front quickly pushes through the region. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, but the threat for severe weather is low. Rainfall totals are not looking impressive, with most models giving Lincoln only about a quarter inch of rain. Extreme southeast Nebraska may see closer to half an inch if storm activity can get better organized by late afternoon.

Highs on Saturday will reach the upper 60s, maybe 70 degrees, around noontime but quickly fall into the 50s in the late afternoon after the cold front moves through. Winds Saturday will remain breezy, out the south between 15-20 miles per hour before shifting to the northwest between 10-15 miles per hour in the afternoon.

After the cold front and rain moves through, the clouds will soon follow. Saturday night looks partly cloudy and cool with lows near 40 degrees and light northwest winds.

Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 60s.

Monday will see a brief warm up to highs around 70 degrees, but another cold front late Monday threatens to drop our temperatures heading into Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will only be in the upper 50s.

The rest of next week looks similar with a mix of sun and clouds, much cooler temperatures (some days below average), as well as the potential for some frost/freezing some mornings.
