As a cold front passes through this evening, winds will switch direction and turn out of the north. They will also increase after seeing lighter winds in the evening. Winds will pick back up to 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Very light rain or sprinkles could pass through behind the front. They will change to flurries or very light snow as the temperature drops. Bye tomorrow morning, most places will be down into the 20s, but wind chills will be in the single digits and teens.
The light snow/flurry chance will continue for Southern Nebraska and Northern Kansas Saturday, but amounts will be very low. There's a chance nothing actually falls. Temperatures will remain in the 20s and lower 30s and the strong northerly winds stick around. They'll be strongest in the morning.
Heading into Saturday night, high pressure will move in from the north. This will help the winds die down and clear up the skies. Cold temperatures are expected with lows in the mid to upper 10s.
It'll still be a little below average for Sunday's highs on a sunny day. But it will be an improvement with highs in the low to mid 40s.
A great week is ahead of us with plenty of sunshine. Look for highs on Monday and Tuesday into the upper 40s and low to mid 50s. Temperatures on Wednesday should soar well into the mid to upper 50s. Thanksgiving Thursday looks even milder yet with highs into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. Another mild day is anticipated for Black Friday with temperatures well into the 50s.
