THURSDAY COLD FRONT

A cold front will swing through southeast Nebraska Thursday evening.  Ahead of the front, temperatures will climb to the middle 70°s to near 80°.  North and west of the front temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40°s and 50°s.  Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible, especially ahead of the front.

Once the front passes, winds will become strong – gusting 45+ mph – and shift out of the northwest.  Temperatures will also begin to drop.  Most of the area should be in the 30°s by Friday morning and high temperatures Friday should only be in the mid-40°s.
