A Warm Wave for Spring Break — FIRST ALERT WEATHER

Highs should reach the lower 50s. Rain-showers tonight. May mix with flakes mid-morning before ending midday Tuesday.

A cold front will arrive Wednesday night/ Thursday morning. Unfortunately, the warmer temperatures will come with a price, and that is more clouds and some occasional showers as early as late today and then continuing on and off through early Friday.

For the weekend, Saturday appears to be dry.

Easter Sunday is still a little "iffy".

The best part of the unsettled pattern is the milder temperatures that the pattern will bring, thanks to a warmer south to southwest wind ahead of the frontal system that will be responsible for the daily rain chances. Some light snow is possible Thursday night as a weak wave of energy scoots through the region. With high pressure in control to our north, it's keeping us wedged with cool, damp and at times, breezy conditions. There is a chance for significant rain on Friday; however the models are trending further west with the heaviest rains.

It will also be breezy at times through Friday with wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour possible on Tuesday, then again Thursday and Friday as another cool front approaches. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 59. Nighttime lows are projected to be in the middle to lower 50s.

Temperatures will be below normal today through the weekend with more chances of widespread snow possible Friday evening through Saturday morning. Expect lows in the lower 60s with highs in the 70s.

Morning showers and isolated storms are possible mainly NW of the Natchez Trace. Temperatures will drop no lower than the 40s Thursday night.

Tonight's weather is partially cloudy and relatively cold.

An approaching cold front to the west will be slow to approach and move through the area. Therefore, temperatures are still expected to top 60 degrees.

Sunday's high is expected to be near 43 degrees. The mercury will likely dip into the 30s. We'll have a few rounds of storms, most likely between 10pm and 4am. However, they are hard to time since the guidance models differ greatly with the timing of a cold front. Daytime highs will be around 62 degrees with sunny skies and dry conditions. The cold front may pass through the state with a few showers Easter morning.

Monday and Tuesday in the Omaha area are forecast to be mostly to partly sunny with highs in the low 50s.
