OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Spotty showers and a few thunderstorms rolling across parts of northeast Nebraska and northwest Iowa this morning, mainly north of the Omaha metro. That rain will stay north of the metro, but another round of showers will likely push into Norfolk and Columbus by around 9am. That batch of showers will continue to push east, reaching the metro by around Noon. The rain will be hit and miss, so not everyone see those showers this morning. Any showers likely fade away by early afternoon, leaving us with a fair bit of dry time today. Temperatures should warm into the mid-70s with the drier weather and partly sunny skies.
