FORECAST as of FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2018
One more pleasant day is expected on Friday with mainly sunny skies and above average temperatures before our next blast of winter weather heads our way. Enjoy it, because things change dramatically by Saturday.
Skies will be mainly sunny on Friday with increasing cloud cover from north to south in the afternoon. High temperatures stay above average in the mid 50s to low 60s. Late Friday, we'll start to see snow developing across northern parts of the state with chances for snow through the day on Saturday as a powerful cold front plows through the state. Snow doesn't look to begin falling in the Greater Nebraska area until late in the overnight hours.
Afternoon high temperatures on Saturday fall down into the mid 20s for most locations with breezy north and northwest winds expected - making it feel even colder. Wind chills Saturday look to be in the teens for the better part of the day.
Snow amounts look like they'll stay light, with an inch or less for most locations. As you head west, snow totals will increase with the greatest amounts falling across the Panhandle.
High pressure settles into the area behind the front, with sunny and cool weather expected on Sunday. Mainly sunny skies and a return to more seasonal temperatures in the 50s are expected for most of next week.
