LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Seasonably “chilly” temperatures to start your weekend will turn “mild” again by Sunday...

A weak disturbance passing through the area Thursday night and into Friday morning will mean cloudiness and some light rain showers during the period...with diminishing precipitation chances and some potential sunshine by Friday afternoon.

The clouds and low-end rain chances should help keep overnight lows a little warmer than last night...but your Friday morning will still be quite cool.

Rain chances end early in the day but residual cloudiness and an increasing northwest breeze will hold readings in the 50s and lower 60s for Friday afternoon.
