OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After thick morning cloud cover, we broke into mainly sunny skies this afternoon and evening around the metro. Temperatures warmed into the middle 80s for most of the region. A few scattered showers and storms developed across parts of western Iowa, but quickly moved away leaving us with dry conditions. The quiet weather will stick around for most of the evening, with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s through sunset.
Scattered thunderstorms are possible once again late this evening and overnight as another storms system pushes through the area. Storm chances will begin to increase after 10pm as two clusters of thunderstorms push closer to the area. One line of storms is developing in South Dakota, and will push east and southeast into far northeast Nebraska and northwest Iowa. These storms likely stay north of the I-80 corridor. Another cluster of storms developing in western Nebraska and Kansas will push east along the Nebraska-Kansas border. These storms will likely stay south of I-80 corridor. Severe weather is possible with both clusters of storms, with large hail and damaging winds the main threats. While rain chances are not between those clusters, the areas from Columbus through Fremont and Omaha may miss out on the bulk of the rainfall.
Drier weather arrives Sunday, along with slightly cooler temperatures. There may be some cloud cover early in the day, but sunshine returns for the afternoon. High temperatures should reach into the low to mid 80s around the region. We heat up for a couple of days to start off the work week. Temperatures climb into the upper 80s on Monday, with low 90s likely on Tuesday. Another cold front arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing a chance for scattered storms along with cooler temperatures in the 70s and lower to mid 80s through the rest of the week.
