OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After a wind shift overnight, temperatures are ranging from 40° around Norfolk to the low-50s near Falls City around 6 AM. Skies are dry and mostly clear to kick of Tuesday, allowing for sunshine once the sun rises at 6:43 AM.
Although more clouds will move in by midday, high temperatures will still manage to warm into the mid to upper-70s! This will be our second day with highs 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. Winds will shift from the NE to the ESE throughout the day, ranging from 5 to 15 mph.
Clouds and southerly winds will keep temperatures mild overnight, just dropping down into the upper-50s. A few scattered showers and storms are possible.
The chance for scattered showers and storms continues into Wednesday, as an area of low pressure moves through the region. A warm front will allow highs to still warm into the low-70s before a cold front swings through during the early afternoon.
While a few strong storms are possible, the better chance for severe weather exists off to the southeast of the Metro during the evening hours as the cold front pushes eastward.
A few lingering showers or sprinkles are possible Thursday; otherwise, clouds will stick around with windy and cooler conditions.
Sunshine returns for Good Friday with seasonable highs in the mid-60s. Saturday looks to be the warmest day with highs near 80°! Easter Sunday looks unseasonably warm, but models are showing a chance for PM showers and storms. We’ll keep an eye on the forecast for you!
