LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The weekend will start off cold and breezy but will end with slightly “warmer” temperatures and more sunshine. We will generally remain dry for the weekend but the chance for snow and cold temperatures are back in the forecast for the start of next week.

Another cold day and breezy day is on tap for Saturday but we will see a little bit more sunshine. High temperatures will remain below average, spanning the upper teens to upper 30s. Temperatures will “warm” as we head southwest. It will be a mostly sunny but breezy day, winds will be between 10 to 20 mph, gusting up to 25 mph. Thanks to the wind, temperatures will likely feel more like the teens throughout the day. A mostly sunny day will lead to a mostly clear night therefore, cold nighttime temperatures are headed our way. Low temperatures will plunge just below zero to the single digits. A few areas of patchy fog may develop through the overnight in portions of western and central Nebraska.
