FORECAST FOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018
An upper level storm system will dive out of Colorado into Oklahoma Friday into Saturday. Unlike last weekend, this will be a warmer system, meaning precipitation will stay as rain. Western and South Central Nebraska stand to see more widespread coverage of rain Friday into Friday night, before moisture settles farther south resulting in more scattered showers over the southeast part of the state.
Showers are possible for the Lincoln area Friday overnight into Saturday morning, with periodic light showers possible up to the kickoff time of the Red-White Game otherwise it will be cloudy.
Finally, some warmer weather comes our way next week. Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid and upper 60s, which is more seasonal for this time of year. A cold front will swipe the area on Tuesday, dropping temperatures into the 50s. Any precipitation produced, will stay as rain.
TODAY: Partly cloudy early in the day...then increasing cloudiness in the afternoon with a 30% chance for rain in the central parts of the state. Southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph with gust to 25 mph at times. Highs will range from mid 50s to lower 60s.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for showers. Lows in the lower 40s. East wind at 5 to 10 mph.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for a shower, into the forenoon. Highs in the lower to mid 50s. East winds 5-10 mph.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs in the low 60s.
