Severe storms across MS and western Alabama early in the day will be slow to progress eastward.

If you're stuck inside most of the day you'll have a chance to enjoy the nice weather later This evening we'll dip into the 60s no earlier than 9pm.

Saturday will be partly cloudy and Sunday will be rainy in the capital, but Monday and Tuesday should by dry with sunny spells.

Snow blankets the roadway Thursday morning on Interstate 80 near Castle Peak.

Southerly winds kick in to help warm us right up on Saturday. But then get ready for some big changes by as early as late Saturday afternoon in North Jersey and Saturday evening and night elsewhere.

Another cold front will move through the northern Rockies Monday.

Sunday looks even worse. These cool temperatures will continue into the overnight period as we head down to a low temperature of under 30 degrees.


The next work week will begin with dry conditions, and temperatures will slowly warm back up into the low 40s.

- A winter storm watch will be in effect from late Friday into Saturday night for parts of northeast and east-central Nebraska, including Tekamah, Grand Island, Hastings and Columbus, and for parts of western Iowa.

The breezy south wind won't back down throughout the night tonight, as sustained winds will range from 15 to 25 miles per hour. A strong cold front will move through Sunday afternoon and evening with showers and thunderstorms.

Full sunshine, breezy and cool conditions are expected Sunday with highs only reaching the low-mid 60s, which would be perfectly normal for January! For others, the showers will come in the form of rain, but there's no doubt Tuesday will be chilly.

Elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the "Good" range in most spots.

"We're going to see some light snow continue, but the sun's coming up", Lester said.
