WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2019 LOCAL4CAST by TIM JONES
A cold front will push southeast through the rest of the area Wednesday morning, but colder air will lag behind the front just a bit. With partly to mostly sunny skies and a brisk northwest winds, temperatures will range from around 50° northwest to the mid 60s southeast. Late in the day and into Wednesday night, temperatures will likely start to drop. A few more spotty showers, possibly mixed with snow will move into Northern Nebraska late Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night.
Winds won't be as strong Thursday, but it will be colder. With a mix of clouds and sun, expect cooler temperatures for everyone with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. That's after morning lows in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s on Thursday morning.
Thursday night will likely drop below freezing for almost everybody with lows by Friday morning in the mid to upper 20s. By Friday afternoon, we should have nicer weather. Plenty of sunshine will help boost hight temperatures into the mi to upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds should not be terribly strong.
Saturday may be the nicest day of the forecast. Look for highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s with the warmest temperatures west. There should be a good amount of sunshine, but it may be a little breezy. Another cold front means another cooldown for Sunday. Highs will be back down into the 40s and lower 50s, which may just be the beginning of a cold spell to mark the end of the month next week. Temperatures will remain well below average. While there isn't much forecast model agreement right now, we may have to watch for a chance of snow sometime early next week, but that will be addressed as the appropriate time comes.
