OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Showers and storms dropped several inches of rain across the region last night through this morning, with some spots south of the I-80 corridor picking up as much as 2 to 4 inches of rainfall! Rain quickly exited the region mid-morning, leaving us with a fair amount of sunshine and beautiful conditions this afternoon. Temperatures warm into the lower 70s, fairly close to average for this time of year. Skies will remain mostly clear overnight as winds drop off. Temperatures should slide into the low to mid 50s by morning. Some patchy fog is possible as well, especially in low lying areas and river valleys. Some dense patches of fog reducing visibility to less than a quarter-mile will be possible, but not expected to be widespread.
Dry and sunny weather returns for Monday. In fact, the first day of fall is looking downright pleasant! Temperatures will return to above normal levels, but should only climb to around 80 degrees or so rather than the near 90 degree weather we saw last week. Skies will be mostly clear, giving us plenty of sunshine. Temperatures warm a bit more on Tuesday, climbing into the low to mid 80s. A few thunderstorms are possible Tuesday evening, especially east of the metro in western Iowa. If storms kick off, a few could be on the strong side.
Temperatures moderate back into the middle 70s for Wednesday and Thursday, before popping back into the 80s on Friday. Another storm system will bring additional rain chances Thursday evening and overnight, and again Friday evening and overnight.
