OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A few scattered showers moved through early this morning, but the rain did not last long and we saw sunshine quickly return to the area by mid-morning. Rainfall amounts were generally under a quarter of an inch. Sunshine helped to warm temperatures above average this afternoon, with highs in the upper 60s to around 70 in a few spots. Skies will remain clear this evening, making for a great fall night. Temperatures will cool fairly quickly after sunset, so a light jacket will likely be needed as temperatures fall to around 53 by 10pm. Winds will start to creep up overnight as clouds begin to filter in as well. That will keep temperatures from falling too far, with lows around 46 for the metro area.
Sunday will likely be another very breezy day as southeast winds increase into the 15 to 20mph range, with gusts to 35mph especially in the late morning to early afternoon. Clouds will thicken up through the day as well, with showers possible after Noon. A few isolated storms can't be ruled out, though widespread thunderstorm activity is not expected. Temperatures should still be mild, with highs in the middle 60s. Winds will let up some by evening, but will pick up again overnight as a cold front moves through the area. We will likely see a dry period overnight, but a few scattered showers will be possible once again on Monday. Very strong northwest winds are possible on Monday, with sustained winds of 15 to 25mph likely, and gusts as high as 40 to 45mph. Temperatures will be cooler, with highs only in the middle 50s.
Mild but still breezy weather will move in on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will top out in the low 60s. More cool conditions are expected by the end of the week as another cold front pushes through. A few showers are possible on Thursday, mainly south of the metro. Highs on Thursday and Friday will likely only top out in the lower 50s.
