OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The story for much of our week has been the blustery wind and today will be no different.

One difference is that it will be warmer; the day starts in the mid 30s and we will peak near 60 degrees for our mid-afternoon highs.

The morning and early afternoon will see southerly winds again gusting to 30 miles per hour.

However, a strong cold front will move through the area in the afternoon and bring quick and big changes.

Temperatures will likely drop 20 to 30 degrees in a matter of a couple of hours early in the evening.

Behind the front, gusts will reach and could exceed 50 miles per hour out of the northwest through the evening.
