Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska
FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2014
Today is a good day for the kids to be off school, a lot of sunshine in the works and highs around 70 degrees. High pressure kept skies clear and cooled us off this morning to just below average lows, but those same clear skies will allow us to get above average highs. The only downside to the outdoors today will be stronger winds, 15 to 25 mph south winds.
A cold front will move into the state Saturday which won't bring colder temperatures, but it will likely bring rain. Light to moderate rain will move through mainly Central and Eastern Nebraska starting Saturday afternoon.
While widespread severe weather is not anticipated at this time, we still want you to be aware that a few isolated strong-to-severe thunderstorms will be possible this weekend. And with all the outdoor Easter plans in the works we urge you to stay up-to-date with the latest 10-11 weather forecasts.
