LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - In the wake of a frontal passage...Tuesday has been blustery and much cooler than long will this chillier weather last ?...

I hope you didn’t get spoiled by those highs in the 70s and 80s on Monday...because it is still early in this spring season and “change” is going to be a constant companion. Sometimes the changes will be week-to-week...sometimes day-to-day...and other times hour-to-hour. It’s just part of living in Nebraska during the months of March and April. Dramatically cooler air has spilled across the region today...dropping temperatures BELOW AVERAGE for late-March...just 24 hours after summer-like conditions dominated the forecast area on Monday. Cooler-than-normal weather will remain in place for the next 36 hours or so...before we warm back up to seasonal levels by Thursday afternoon.

A warm front will slide east across 10-11 Country on Friday...opening the door once again to a nice warm-up that will rival the conditions we enjoyed on Monday. High temperatures by Friday and Saturday are expected to return to the 70s...with readings in the 80s possible for Easter Sunday. It will be breezy at times...with Friday and Sunday looking like the “windiest” days. While our temperatures will “bounce around” a bit over the next several days...our precipitation pattern will remain fairly constant...meaning little-to-no moisture all the way through Easter Sunday.
