Conditions will remain windy Sunday in the Omaha area, with north-northwest winds gusting as high as 35 mph.

Forecasters expect a 20 percent chance of showers before noon and a high near 55.

Monday should be mostly sunny with a high near 60, the weather service said.

The big change in the Omaha area should begin late Monday night, when a chance of rain and snow and a low around 34 are forecast.

The rain and snow chances stick around Tuesday and Tuesday night, with the daytime high near 40 and the overnight low around 20 degrees.

Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. The weather service also called for a slight chance of rain and snow Wednesday night.
