A complex weather system continues to affect the area Saturday

15 April, 2018, 00:40 | Author: Kristen Ingram
  • Weather Authority: Warmer today, wet and cooler for the weekend

Turning cloudy and breezy; some drizzle or a bit of rain developing.

Sunday is a First Alert Weather Day.

Clouds will continue to filter in during the afternoon as we warm up to a daytime high a degree or so above freezing.

Audra Moore, a meteorologist at KMTV, said the Omaha area will be under a slight risk for severe weather - which can include high winds, hail and heavy rain - Friday afternoon and Friday night. The rain then changes to snow tonight, with near-blizzard conditions expected for some areas mainly north and west of the Council Bluffs-Omaha area tonight into Saturday. This will increase winds and very warm air will move into the Midlands for Saturday.

Another system heads our way on Monday night into the morning on Tuesday. Along with that chill, Sunday is going to be cloudy and damp with light rain, again possibly freezing rain or sleet to the north, falling on-and-off throughout the day although the steadiest rain will hold off until later Sunday night. It will remain breezy with southerly winds gusting to 25 miles per hour overnight. Rain will be with us off-and-on on Saturday.

Temperatures in the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys were expected to range from highs near 50 to lows in the lower 30s on Thursday.

Otherwise, look for additional rounds of showers and storms through Sunday morning before the cold front blasts through and the heavy rain exits east.

While Sunday won't be a washout, there will be periods of showers and highs may not make it much above 40. The main weather issue for Friday will be strong gusty winds as the pressure gradient tightens with the approaching front. South wind 7 to 17 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 24 miles per hour.

Temperatures will warmup for Wednesday with highs in the mid and upper 70s.

The 70 degree weather from Thursday is long gone for most of the Chicago area.

With all the insane weather we can get around here there can be some truth to the phrase, "wait five minutes and the weather can change". However, another cold front move through Tuesday night, cooling us back to near 60 by Wednesday.
