Mallory’s Weekend Forecast - Even warmer weather in store for Easter Sunday
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After a mid-week cool-down, we’re looking to continue the warming trend through Easter Weekend!
Saturday started off with temperatures in the 40s and mostly clear skies. Plentiful sunshine took us through the day with much lighter winds than what we experienced Friday. A beautiful day overall, with highs Saturday afternoon in the upper-70s for most! Mostly clear skies carried us into the overnight hours, with lows dropping into the upper-40s in the Metro.
Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies return Sunday with highs climbing into the mid-80s! Winds will pick up once again, with gusts up to 25 mph. Slightly higher gusts are possible for areas south or southwest of the Metro.
Haze from Flint Hills will be the nuisance of the day, so don’t be surprised if you see or smell smoke. Unfortunately, air quality dropped to “unhealthy for sensitive groups” as of 7 AM Sunday.
The weekend will remain dry for any of your outdoor plans, with a storm chance returning late Easter night into Monday morning. Highs Monday will once again climb into the 80s, before another chance for storms arrives late.
Our taste of summer comes to an end by mid-week. A front will move through Tuesday, sparking additional showers and thunderstorms from the evening into overnight hours. Highs Tuesday should still be well above-normal, in the 70s.
Highs in the 60s move in for the rest of the week, with lingering rain possible Wednesday into Thursday as an area of low pressure tracks slowly through the region. We’ll keep an eye out for any severe storm potential next week. Conditions remain breezy through the workweek.
