OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Overnight thunderstorms rolled through areas south of Interstate 80.

Those will continue to weaken and slide southeast away from us early this morning.

As the morning goes on, cloud cover will be decreasing and that will lead to temperatures jumping to the low 90s for highs.

The mugginess will be noticeable today and result in it feeling a few degrees warmer than the actual temperature.
