Clouds will be on the increase Wednesday morning, turning skies overcast. Light showers will be possible. First in central Nebraska by 7 a.m./8 a.m. Light showers should arrive in the Lincoln area by late morning thru early afternoon.
There should be breaks in the clouds by late afternoon, allowing temperatures to climb back to the middle/upper 60°s.
The next chance for rain comes Friday as there could be a few isolated showers. More widespread rain looks to arrive for Saturday. Computer models are suggesting a half inch to three-quarters of an inch of rain is possible. It is still a little
