LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Cloudy...blustery...and cool is no way to go through the month of March...but that’s exactly where we’ve been the past few days. The good news...changes are heading our way as we slide into the back-half of the work week...

High pressure will be dropping into the local forecast area beginning with your Thursday. Gusty north winds throughout the day will keep a “chill” in the air even as sunshine returns...and make afternoon readings in the low 40s-to-low 50s feel even cooler. After a very chilly start...Friday looks rather pleasant with mostly sunny skies...a southeast breeze...and temperatures heading into the low-to-mid 50s.

Temperatures should continue to warm into the 60s for the weekend...but increasing south-southwest winds will once again become an issue with gusts around 40 mph a good bet for both Saturday and Sunday. Our next storm system moves into the region later Sunday...bringing with it another good chance for rain...perhaps even some isolated thunderstorms for Sunday night. The expected precipitation chance looks like it will linger into Monday and Tuesday of next week as our already “soggy” month of March looks to get even “soggier”.

Your Lincoln Forecast...

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy...breezy...and colder. A few isolated showers possible at times. Lows in the upper 20s-to-low 30s. North winds of 15 to 25 mph...with gusts to 30 or 35 mph possible.

THURSDAY: Some morning cloudiness with an isolated light rain or snow shower possible early...then becoming partly-to-mostly sunny. Still quite breezy. Highs in the upper 40s-to-lower 50s. North winds of 15 to 25 mph...with gusts to 30 or 35 mph possible.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and seasonably chilly. Lows in the mid-to-upper 20s. Northeast winds of 5 to 15 mph.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny and a bit milder. Highs in the low-to-mid 50s. Southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph...with gusts to 20 mph possible in the afternoon.
