Slight rain showers possible with below average temperatures continuing

Friday's balmy weather is forecast to turn to rain and snow by Saturday morning when a cold front sweeps in from the Great Lakes.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, light snow possible.

Tuesday should be the start of a warming trend with mostly sunny skies, a high near 44 and northwest winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour. Overnight, a few rain and snow showers are possible, otherwise, it's mainly cloudy. With a low of 12 degrees in the forecast, we'll easily break that by Saturday morning.

Records for low temperature also fell in Omaha (14 degrees), Norfolk (12), Hastings (11), Grand Island (10) and North Platte (4).

Temperatures in the afternoon will only hit the mid to (maybe) upper 40s.that's 8 to 10° below average. Quiet weather will continue for much of the weekend, under variable cloud cover.

Saturday Afternoon: It'll stay breezy and cooler through the day on Saturday with a fair number of clouds around through mid-day. At this time, no impacts are expected for travel in Mid-Missouri Sunday since during most of the event, we'll be above freezing.

Normal highs & lows: 70 & 45. Western Montana will see rain showers, however we are not expecting the amounts of precipitation as locations in Idaho. Temperatures for tonight will fall into the 30s which will transitions the light rain into snow showers. Temperatures will bottom out in the low to mid 20s. Low pressure approaching from the northwest will lift some Gulf of Mexico moisture into rather tightly wedged cold air. The wind chill only let us feel like we were in the lower 30's at the warmest part of the day.
