Rusty's Forecast - Chilly tonight, a little bit of winter to start the weekend

By  | 

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are likely this evening and overnight as temperatures steadily fall into the through the 20s. Clouds will clear out enough in the morning that we'll drop into the upper teens to start Thursday.

After a chilly start, we'll have quite a bit of sunshine allowing us to warm into the lower 40s by mid afternoon. A southeast wind at 10-20 mph will help us warm a bit.

We'll be stuck under the clouds Friday as temperatures struggle to warm. Highs will be above average but only in the upper 30s. That will set the stage for a little precipitation Friday night.

A light wintry mix is possible after sunset Friday in the metro and areas south but most will likely hold off until after midnight. A few slick spots are possible from this, especially south. By Saturday morning a little light snow will be possible in the metro. Very little, if any, accumulation is likely from this as of now in the Omaha metro but areas around Nebraska City, Shenandoah and Falls City could end up with a couple of inches. This accumulation will primarily occur in the morning. It will exit east by the afternoon and skies will stay cloudy the rest of the day. Stay with us for the latest.
