OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A cold front pushed through the area today with a few scattered showers in the metro around midday. Those showers knocked our temperatures back into the mid 70s briefly, but we rebounded back into the 80s as sunshine returned during the late afternoon and evening. Warm conditions will continue this evening with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. Temperatures will slowly drop back into the 70s after sunset, with lows tonight in the middle 60s. Northwest winds overnight will help to pull in some slightly drier air, dropping humidity levels a bit for the second half of the weekend.
Sunny skies return for Father's Day with high temperatures climbing into the middle 80s Sunday afternoon. The quiet weather will last into Monday, with partly cloudy skies and slightly cooler conditions. Highs on Monday should reach into the upper 70s to around 80.
Our next chance for storms enter the forecast on Tuesday. We should be dry initially on Tuesday with partly cloudy skies and temperatures warming into the upper 70s. Chance for showers and storms will increase throughout the day, with scattered showers and storms likely in the afternoon. Depending on the timing of the storms, some could be on the strong side. Showers and a few storms will linger overnight into Wednesday morning with temperatures falling into the low 60s. After a dry day Thursday, we'll see another chance for scattered storms to round out the week on Friday.
