While Omaha enjoys sunshine and warmer temperatures this noon hour, showers have fired on the western periphery of the 3 News Now Coverage area, tracking from O'Neil into the Norfolk area. The rain will stay to the northwest of the Metro but mid level cloudiness will build toward the Missouri River as the afternoon wears on.
Subtle impulses, rotating around an upper level low in Canada will present the same type of weather as we head into the Memorial Weekend.
Storms will fire and push out of the High Plains and track across Nebraska tonight. The thunderstorms will become more scattered providing they hold together long enough to reach this far east.
A much stronger system follows Friday night into Saturday afternoon. Some locally heavy rain is possible with this event.
Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 70s again on Friday cooling into the lower to mid 70s through the holiday weekend. Sunday and Memorial Day itself look mainly sunny with only a slight chance for a thunderstorms Monday.
