OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Clouds build Wednesday night with returning chances for spotty showers and storms after midnight into mid-morning Thursday. Chances are slim and it will not be a washout! Highs climb to the upper 70s and low 80s with more sunshine in the afternoon.

Friday will be mainly dry in the morning and afternoon with a stray shower or storm possible here and there but nothing organized... by Friday night our storm chances increase as a round moves in likely after 11PM. This will last into the early morning hours Saturday and bring a severe threat.
