LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A cold front will bring another shot of cooler air back into the region for the middle of our week...with a quick return to windy-and-warmer conditions by Thursday.

After a rather pleasant Tuesday...clouds will be on the increase Tuesday night as a cold front approaches from the north. This front “may” kick off a few light snow showers across parts of northern and northeastern Nebraska early Wednesday morning...but nothing significant is expected at this time. The balance of the day Wednesday should be partly-to-mostly cloudy...breezy...and seasonably cool with highs in the upper 30s-to-upper 40s. A warm front will sweep across the region on Thursday...ushering in strong south winds and afternoon temperatures in the 60s and 70s. A cold front will then slide into the forecast area Thursday night, setting up the possibility for showers and thunderstorms...with a few of the thunderstorms possibly reaching severe limits. Stay tuned to the latest forecast details as the week wears on as we update that Thursday forecast. That potential severe weather threat will be followed by falling temperatures...strong northerly winds...and a chance for rain-changing-to-snow later Friday and into Friday night.
