OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Winds pick up this weekend with above-normal temperatures returning!

We started Saturday on a chilly note, with temperatures in the 30s and wind chills in the 20s. Abundant sunshine and strong southerly winds drove temperatures into the 60s this afternoon with gusts up to 40 mph. Due to the strong winds and low relative humidity, a burn ban was put into place for Douglas County.

A few more clouds moved in Saturday night, with lows only dropping into the mid to upper-40s. Conditions remained breezy.

Partly sunny skies are in store Sunday with temperatures warming into the mid-60s! Winds will still be high, with SSW gusts up to 45 mph.
