Quiet and mild weather lasts into Sunday afternoon before rain and storm chances move in
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After a couple of chilly days to close out the work week, we saw a nice recovery today with temperatures climbing into the mid 40s.
A southwest breeze helped to boost the temperatures with gusts up around 25 miles per hour at times.
Those winds subside for the night, making for a pretty pleasant night for late February.
Sunday starts off with temperatures in the mid 20s but warming kicks in pretty quickly.
By the afternoon, we will be up into the mid 50s despite increasing cloud cover.
In the evening, shower chances will increase with some thunderstorms becoming possible as well.
Areas near and south of Nebraska City could see a storm or two that contains a bit of hail.
The rain continues overnight and into early Monday morning, and it could be heavy at times.
Widespread totals in the half inch to inch range look likely with isolated spots picking up a little more as you move south and east from the metro.
In the aftermath of that system, winds will be strong with gusts up to 40 miles per hour Monday afternoon.
A couple of systems may clip us with a little bit of precipitation Tuesday and again Thursday morning, but the bulk of the precipitation with those look to end up outside of our area.
Temperatures stay pretty seasonal as we head into the first week of March.
