LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - After a breezy, hazy day on Saturday to start the weekend, we’ll see more of the same on Sunday as not much is expected to change across the state with more strong south winds ahead of a weak cold front and hazy conditions due to wildfire smoke in the area.

South winds have been gusting between 25 and 40 MPH across much of the state on Saturday afternoon, and while winds should settle a bit Saturday evening and Saturday night, they are expected to pick right back up Sunday morning and into the afternoon.

Strong southerly winds are expected again on Sunday with gusts between 30 and 40 MPH possible across eastern Nebraska.

A weak front pushing in from the west should keep the strongest winds across eastern Nebraska, where again wind gusts could top out at around 40 MPH at times. Also ahead of the front, some sinking motion in the atmosphere could lead to smoke mixing down to the surface at times. So while skies are expected to remain hazy for many on Sunday, air quality could be impacted across eastern Nebraska as smoke tries to filter down to the ground.

More areas of smoke are expected to create hazy conditions on Sunday. Smoke could potentially mix down to the surface on Sunday, leading to some possible air quality issues.
