Clouds have returned for the night as a weak cold front passes through the region. While there may be a few sprinkles, most of us will stay dry. It will actually be a warmer start to Thursday, near 40 degrees.

Any morning clouds will thin out Thursday, leading to a mostly sunny afternoon. It will be breezy and slightly cooler, with highs in the upper 50s to near 60.

The main shot of colder air hits Friday, leading to breezy winds and daytime highs in the lower to mid 50s, with sunny skies. This is still well above average for this time of year, when we are supposed to have highs near 40 degrees.

Here's a look at just how warm it has been in Omaha this February, compared to normal.
