OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Another round of showers and storms rolled into the region this morning, bringing heavy rain to southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa. These storms quickly faded this morning, leaving us with partly cloudy skies as well as humid conditions. The clouds slowed our warm up just a bit, with highs climbing to around 80. The clouds also delaying development of additional storms this afternoon, but more storms will develop this evening across the area. A few strong storms are possible, mainly southeast of the metro area. Risks would generally be limited to a few isolated large hail or high wind reports. Scattered showers and storms will continue overnight, but generally diminished toward morning. Temperatures will fall back into the middle 60s.
A few showers may be left over early on Sunday, but we should get a break in the rain for the late morning. Mostly cloudy skies are expected through the day, which will keep temperatures on the cooler side for this time of year. Highs will likely only reach into the middle 70s. Scattered thunderstorms are expected to redevelop in the afternoon and evening, however the severe weather risk is low. Scattered showers or a few storms will continue through the overnight, with rain finally pulling out of the area late Sunday night or Monday morning.
A much drier and warmer weather pattern will build on on Monday. After an isolated shower early in the morning, mostly sunny skies will return Monday afternoon with highs right around 80. We climb into the upper 80s on Tuesday, with upper 80s and low 90s expected Wednesday through Friday. There is a slight chance for an isolated storm Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, but most of the week should feature dry weather.
