Warm start to the weekend followed by Sunday rain

A cold front will be moving through Nebraska on Saturday.

Ahead of the front, temperatures should be able to warm in to the low and middle 80s.

Warmer temperatures ahead of the front does not mean we return to humid conditions. Instead, it should be comfortable, with dew points in the upper 40s to near 50.

At peak heating of the day, with a cold front nearby, there is a small chance for a spotty shower late in the afternoon.  Most areas will remain dry.

Energy slides out of the Rockies on Saturday night and passes through Nebraska into Sunday morning.  This will spark showers, and perhaps a few thunderstorms, after midnight Sunday morning and continue through midmorning.  A 29-computer-model average suggests 0.23 of an inch of rain falling in Lincoln, with lesser amounts south and west.

All of Sunday will not be a washout.  After the rain departs, clouds will start to thin.  Skies should become mostly sunny for the afternoon with highs in the lower to middle 70s.
