LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A cold front advancing across the region will bring changes to our weather pattern...

The warm and windy conditions of Thursday will be replaced by cooler and wetter weather over the next 24 hours. It was summer-like across 10-11 Country on Thursday...with gusty south winds and sunny skies pushing our afternoon highs into the upper 80s to middle 90s. A cold front sliding across the region will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the forecast area beginning Thursday evening in the north and west...eventually moving into central and eastern Nebraska late Thursday night and into the day on Friday. Widespread heavy rain is not anticipated with this weather system...but many areas could see decent rainfall totals and some isolated locations may see even more significant rainfall if the front stalls out for a period of time over eastern Nebraska on Friday.
