Rusty’s First Alert Forecast - Rounds of rain & storms move through with a few strong storms possible.
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A complex of rain and storms is moving through the area this morning with heaviest rain likely to track north of I-80 and the metro. Rain and storms are still possible in the metro are and once they move in there is likely to be hit and miss rain and storms in the area at times all day today and tonight. We’ll try to warm up to near 90 degrees this afternoon among the mostly cloudy skies.
Mostly cloudy skies and on and off rain and storms will be just enough to get in the way of any big warming today. That will impact the ability of the area to heat up and add too much energy to the atmosphere for stronger storms later today. There is the risk of a little severe weather in the area after 5pm today, especially north of I-80. Isolated wind gusts up near 60 mph would be the greatest risk.
Rain and a few storms are likely to continue into the morning hours of Thursday as well before moving out leaving us with a partly cloudy afternoon. The heaviest rain totals will likely end up north of the metro. Some 1″ rain totals are possible
It will be cooler behind all this rain as well!
