Yeah, there are showers and strong winds in the Omaha-area weather forecast for Saturday. But here’s the important fact: Skies should be clear for the Nebraska-Miami kickoff in Lincoln on Saturday night.

The National Weather Service Office in Valley, Nebraska, said partly sunny skies should clear after this morning. Forecasters called for a high temperature today in the mid-80s and south winds of 10 to 20 mph, with gusts around 30 mph.

Skies are expected to be mostly clear tonight through midnight, the weather service said, with mostly cloudy conditions and showers and thunderstorms likely to move in after midnight. The weather service put the chances of precipitation at 70 percent early Saturday. An overnight low temperature in the upper 60s is expected, along with southwest winds of 5 to 15 mph and gusts around 25 mph.

Saturday is looking to be pleasant in the Omaha area, forecasters said, under mostly sunny skies and a high in the lower 80s.

Conditions are to cool off a bit Saturday night, the weather service predicted, under mostly clear skies. Look for a low in the mid-50s.

Sunday and Monday are likely to be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-70s and overnight lows in the 50s.
