LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Breezy and warmer weather conditions are expected on Thursday...before a cold front brings some changes for Thursday night and Friday...

After a seasonably “chilly” start to our day on Wednesday...morning lows in the mid 40s to mid 50s...some gusty southerly winds brought the region a mix of clouds and sun with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

That south breeze will continue overnight...keeping Wednesday night-Thursday morning low temperatures much milder than last night.

Ahead of an approaching cold front...those south winds and expected sunshine will allow for high temperatures on Thursday to head for the mid 80s-to-mid 90s across the state.

With the cold front moving into Nebraska later on Thursday...thunderstorms are expected to develop over parts of northern and western Nebraska...with those showers-and-thunderstorm chances pushing east overnight Thursday and into the day on Friday. There will be a “marginal” risk of strong-to-severe ‘storms for parts of the area late Thursday and Thursday night. Some locations could also see some heavy rain from Thursday night into Friday if the aforementioned cold front stalls a bit...and repeated thunderstorms develop over the same locations...something we will need to keep an eye on as forecast conditions become more clear so stay tuned.
