Rapidly Falling Temperatures Thursday

Accumulating snow possible Sunday
and last updated 2020-10-22 07:39:17-04

It's not as cold this morning, but we have widespread fog, mist, and drizzle keeping the roads wet and hard to see across the region.

Warmer weather blows in this morning, getting us close to 60 in Omaha around the lunch hour. A strong cold front then moves in dropping temperatures into the mid 40s by the evening commute with strong winds. The cold front will hit northeast Nebraska first, keeping them a lot colder all day, but areas closer to NW Missouri will have enough time to reach the upper 70s before the cold front arrives late in the day there.

The cold front will also kick off a few spotty showers and storms as it moves through. The best chance for a stronger storm will be in the warmer areas, down towards northwest Missouri. A few scattered showers and storms will even continue late tonight, mainly along and south of I-80.

Friday starts windy and cold, with lows in the mid 30s. Winds then slowly lighten up through the afternoon, with some late-day sunshine possible. Highs will only be in the low 40s at best.

We stay cold, but dry, for your outdoor Husker plans on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. The wind won't be too strong but it will be cold, with mid 20s in the morning and mid 40s in the afternoon.

Scattered rain arrives Sunday morning, eventually changing into snow later in the day and could continue through Sunday night. Accumulations are looking more likely, but it's too soon to say how much. Stay tuned for updates!
