LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Cold and windy conditions stick around for the end of the work week. Temperatures “warm up” for the weekend but will still remain several degrees below average for this time of year.

Gear up for another cold and windy day on Friday. High temperatures will only reach the 20s for the majority of us, but a few northern counties will stick in the upper teens. However, with the wind, sustained between 20 to 30 mph and gusting to 40 mph, it will feel more like the single digits to teens for majority of the day. Cloudy skies will dominate the first half of the day and then cloud cover will slowly decrease through the afternoon and evening. A few snow flurries cannot be ruled out as the back end of the low pressure system exits the region.
