OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The first widespread blast of colder air is set to roll in to end the week. While the coldest day will likely be Friday, the coldest night will be Friday night into Saturday morning. That cold air will lead to widespread frost and is why I’ve made Saturday morning a First Alert Weather Day. Several areas will see temperatures cold enough to have a light freeze as well, especially in some of the river valleys.

The cold blast will drop in from the north and likely impact a large portion of the area starting Friday. Highs in the mid 50s are likely Friday afternoon before plunging well into the 30s by Saturday morning. This will lead to frost for many of us and a light freeze for some as well. This will be harmful to most sensitive plants and gardens and may threaten some exposed pipes for an hour or two.
