OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After starting off with some scattered thundershowers early Tuesday, we have cleared our sky out.

Temperatures will again rise into the low 90s today, though this is likely the last day for a little while.

A cold front moves through during the day today, switching our winds from the south to the northwest.

Throughout the day, winds could gust up to 30 miles per hour.

As we get into the evening, we will see the northwest wind begin pulling some cooler and drier air into the area.

This will lead to cooler weather over the coming days with highs in the low to mid 80s.

The breeze stays active on Wednesday and, with the northwest direction, it may pull some smoke into the area and lead to a hazy sky.

Aside from that, it will be pretty pleasant as we go through the rest of the week.

Temperatures return to the upper 80s for Friday and Saturday ahead of our next system.

That system will give us a chance for showers and storms off and on from late Saturday night through Monday morning.

Behind that system, a fall preview takes hold with highs in the 70s looking likely next year.
