LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - After a cool and rather cloudy Wednesday...sunshine is expected to return for Thursday as temperatures warm back into the 70s...

A few isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday night...followed by decreasing cloudiness as the night wears on. Overnight lows will cool back into the 40s for most of us...and there could be some patchy areas of late-night fog. A secondary cold front will slip across the forecast area on Thursday...bringing us a gusty north wind...dry conditions...and seasonably mild temperatures under mostly sunny skies. As high pressure builds in behind the front another seasonably cool overnight is expected Thursday night...followed by a significant warming trend to end the work week and head us into the weekend.

A little less wind and a little more heat for your Arbor Day Friday...with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s-to-lower 80s. For the weekend temperatures are expected to stay in the 70s and 80s...with dry and breezy conditions for Saturday. Some areas of the state on Saturday could make a run at 90° again. Sunday will be another warm day ahead of a cold front...with highs in the mid 70s-to-mid 80s for much of 10-11 Country...but that approaching front will bring with it the chance for showers and thunderstorms by late-afternoon and evening. Cloudy...cooler...and potentially wet conditions are then expected to linger into the middle of next week. High temperatures will go from the 70s and 80s on Sunday back down into the 60s for Monday and Tuesday...and each day will have a chance for showers and thunderstorms at times.
