Colder air will be slow to arrive on gusty winds

A cold front is now in Iowa and Missouri after passing through Nebraska Wednesday.  The front has also pulled rain out of the state.  Conditions will turn dry until mid-next week.

Cooler air will be slow to arrive behind the cold front.  While it will be cooler Thursday, it won’t be cold by mid-November standards.  Temperatures should top out around 50° Thursday afternoon.

Colder air will arrive in time for the last day of the work week.  Temperatures are going to struggle to get out of the 30°s during the afternoon.  Combined with strong winds – coming up next – wind chill values will likely be in the upper teens to lower 20°s Friday morning.  Wind chills will remain in the 20°s throughout the day.  Be sure to find a warm coat for Friday!

HANG ON TO YOUR HAT

Gusty winds will arrive in Nebraska Thursday.  Winds will be gusting 25-35 mph out of the west/northwest, especially late Thursday afternoon.  The winds will remain sustained 12-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph overnight in to Friday morning.

The bulk of the wind looks to arrive Friday morning through early afternoon.  Computer models suggest winds could gust 35-45 mph.  As mentioned earlier, this will produce wind chill values not felt since April and March earlier this year.
