OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After a summer-like weekend, we’re tracking storms Sunday night followed by a cooler workweek ahead.

Temperatures warmed into the 80s again Sunday, despite there being more clouds around and higher humidity as well. A stationary front kept most of the rain off to our north throughout the day, but storms began to fire up west and north of the Omaha Metro just before 5 PM Sunday. These storms may carry a heavy rainfall, lightning, and hail threat.

UPDATE: Storms did strengthen enough for Severe Thunderstorm Warnings to be issued Sunday evening:

A greater coverage of showers and storms is expected overnight, as the front finally tracks southeast through the WOWT viewing area. Heavy rainfall and localized flooding remain concerns, with small hail and gusty winds possible.

Showers and a few storms will linger through Monday morning, before pushing off to the east for the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be much cooler Monday, with highs in the mid-60s and wind gusts from the North up to 35 mph.

Northerly wind gusts up to 35 mph Monday

High temperatures in the 60s and lows in the 40s will take us through the workweek, before we sneak up to 70° by Friday. Another chance for much lighter shower activity returns late Wednesday into early Thursday.
