A complex low pressure system marching into the Plains continues to strengthen and get better organized, and it will bring a variety of weather conditions to the Heartland.

Showers and scattered storms will likely pop across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa later this evening primarily after 10PM. Currently the Storm Prediction Center has our area under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms with the main threats being hail, locally heavy rain, and very gusty winds.

Showers and scattered storms will linger into Tuesday morning with some redevelopment lasting into the afternoon. Then after the storm system lifts out, much colder air will pour into the region allowing for wintry weather to return. Winter Weather Advisories, Winter Weather Watches, and Winter Storm Warnings have already been posted for parts of western and north central Nebraska.

Omaha may see the rain switching over to a wintry mix by Tuesday evening as temperatures plummet into the mid 30's. Presently accumulations look to be minor for Omaha, but parts of western Nebraska may see upwards to a foot of the white stuff.

The Weather Authority team continues to monitor the latest weather information and will keep you up to date with any new developments.
