LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - As a storm system slides through our area and then exits off to the south and east...seasonably chilly air and gusty north winds will be in place for the first-half of your weekend...

Your Friday night forecast will include much colder temperatures...north winds of 25-to-35 mph with gusts to 45 or 50 mph...and areas of snow and blowing snow. Parts of eastern Nebraska will have the best chance for the higher snow accumulations...but even areas that see just a dusting to one-half inch of snow will still see reduced visibility’s and some slippery roads. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES remain in effect for parts of eastern Nebraska through 6am Saturday...and until noon Saturday for parts of north central and northeastern Kansas.

Low temperatures early Saturday morning will fall into the single-digits and teens...with “feels like” readings ranging from around 5° to -10° thanks in large part to the gusty winds that will remain over much of 10-11 Country Saturday morning. Those winds will diminish to 5 to 15 mph in the afternoon.
