The Council Bluffs-Omaha area dodged last week’s snowy bullet, and the forecast this week looks to be a pleasant one.

National Weather Service meteorologists in Valley, Nebraska, said they expect a much calmer and drier workweek after a winter storm brought snow and high winds to much of the region on Thanksgiving Day and the weekend after.

“The jet stream will lift back north,” Cliff Cole, a weather service meteorologist in North Platte, Nebraska. “That will bring a Pacific high pressure moving into the Plains.”

Skies all week should be mostly sunny with a few scattered clouds.

Temps will range in the high 40s until Friday when they dip a dip to the high 30s.

The upcoming forecast according to the weather service includes:

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 47. West northwest wind 6 to 11 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 31. West northwest wind 6 to 8 mph, with gusts as high as 17 mph.

Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 47. Northwest wind 3 to 6 mph.

Wednesday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 32.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 47.

Thursday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 26.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 38.

Friday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 28.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 46.

Saturday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 34.
