Sun to start Wednesday, isolated showers by afternoon

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

A few scattered showers are out there this morning, but with some sunshine poking out this afternoon, we may warm well into the 50s. Wednesday night will bring a slight chance of showers and a low in the low 30s. Then, by the afternoon, a few light rain showers could develop and clouds will increase in front of our next system moving in Friday.

Snow possible on the eastern side of Scotland, mainly over higher ground.

A drier and more stable atmosphere will limit precipitation across the local area.

A weather chart reveals there will be more snow in Britain over the Easter weekend, with much of Scotland and the north of England to bear the brunt of the wintery weather. Light rain and drizzle will continue at least through lunchtime, with a chance for an isolated shower early in the afternoon.

The day of peak Easter traffic will be closely followed by Maundy Thursday and Saturday, which are each expected to see 3.18 million individual trips.

More news: More Spring snow possible

The forecast for Thursday, March 29 calls for a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 13 C and a low of 1 C with a chance of showers.

We're starting our Wednesday off on a mild note with temperatures in the mid 30's to even low 40's. NIWA's weather team is also watching a southerly change that will bring cooler temperatures for the West Coast and Southland on Saturday with rain developing, which may be heavy. High temperatures will be slightly cooler behind Tuesday night's front. Patchy fog will once again be a concern as we head toward morning with overnight lows dropping around the freezing mark of 32 degrees.

Sunday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 25. Expect a high in the mid-50s under partly sunny skies.

THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with a shower or two.
