LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) -A slow-moving upper-level low pressure system is bringing chilly and damp conditions to the region...and this type of weather is expected to continue through the day on Thursday...

The summer-like weather of last weekend is now just a fond memory as and rainy conditions have overspread 10-11 Country. Low pressure will continue to bring seasonably chilly temperatures and brisk northwest winds to the local area...with periods of rain continuing Wednesday night...Thursday...and Thursday night. A brief break in precipitation is expected for much of the day on Friday as the area should be between weather systems...and temperatures should warm back into the 60s by Friday afternoon. Another weather system slides into the region late in the day on Friday...and that means more rain chances for Friday night and into Saturday morning. After this weather-maker exits off to the east...mainly dry weather should then be in place for the rest of your weekend. Highs on both Saturday and Sunday should return to the 60s...with Sunday the warmer of the two weekend days.
