LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The cold front that moved through the 1011 region Thanksgiving morning will be the culprit for the cool and breezy conditions! Despite the cool temperatures, we will see lots of sunshine for the prime time lunch and dinner hours. Happy Thanksgiving!

It will be a cool and breezy Turkey day across the 1011 region! We will see partly sunny to mostly sunny skies for the first half of the day and then see mainly to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon and evening. Despite the plentiful sunshine this afternoon... high temperatures will be cooler thanks to the cold front. High temperatures will be in the mid 40s to the low 50s. However it will feel several degrees cooler due to wind chill. Winds will generally be north/northwesterly between 15-20 mph, gusting up to 30 mph.
