Forecast: Dry and warmer today in the Omaha area; even better Wednesday

Forecast: Dry and warmer today in the Omaha area; even better Wednesday

FRIDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect variable clouds, scattered showers, and isolated thundershowers.

Wednesday Night: A chance of rain and light snow showers before midnight, then a chance of snow showers. Most areas will be dry but there is a chance for showers across Lamar, Fayette, Winston and Marion counties this afternoon as our next system gets closer.

Easter Sunday offers the best weather of the long holiday weekend, according to NIWA forecaster Maria Augutis - but the rest of the break isn't looking too bad either.

The continued northwesterly flow in the upper levels keeps the regular chances of showers through the work week.

Most of the snow late Wednesday will come after the evening commute and accumulation will be minor - amounts will be similar to what we saw Monday night with 1-3 inches on average. Highs Saturday may only reach the upper 50's. Clouds and a lingering shower or two early Friday should give way to a mix of clouds and sun by afternoon.

Saturday looks partly to mostly sunny and cooler with temperatures in the mid and upper 50s. South wind 5 to 8 miles per hour becoming west southwest in the afternoon. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 30.

We'll see decreasing clouds Thursday with a fresh northerly breezy and cooler highs in the low to mid 50s. Thursday will likely be a wet day, with several intervals of rain and rumbles. Patchy fog will once again be a concern as we head toward morning with overnight lows dropping around the freezing mark of 32 degrees.

There is a window of opportunity opening up on Friday for mostly sunny skies and highs near 60°.

Sunday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 25.
