FORECAST FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 2018
As a storm system tracks out of the Rockies, rain will spread from Western Nebraska into the Tri-Cities this evening, continuing toward the Lincoln area overnight. Coverage of showers will become more scattered as the storm pushes east through Kansas, but periods of showers are expected to be ongoing early Saturday morning with a few showers around the Lincoln area as the opening kickoff for the Red-White game is teed up at Memorial Stadium. Periods of showers are again possible Saturday late afternoon into the evening with mostly cloudy skies through Sunday.
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 upper 50s. Any precipitation produced, will stay as rain.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers. Lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Northeast winds 5-10 mph.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Highs in the low 60s.
