From News9 Meteorologist Nick Bender...

Mother Nature is not really showing us the love this weekend; it's going to be cold! After being spoiled so far this February with above average temperatures, this weekend the month will live up to its cold reputation.

Canadian air will make its way back down into the Central Plains Saturday and Sunday. Morning temperatures will bottom out in the 10s, 20s and 30s with wind chill values in the 0s, 10s and 20s. Sunday will experience some improvement; daytime temperatures will climb into the upper 40s and middle 50s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will blot out the sun until late Sunday afternoon, and brisk northerly winds will further inhibit a return to warmer conditions anytime soon.
