A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 3am Friday morning. Areas included are the Omaha metro, the Lincoln metro and generally north of I-80. The potential for large hail and damaging winds are the main concerns. Have a way to get alerts tonight.

The best chance for seeing a storm will be across the Omaha metro and areas to the north and east. A couple storms could even flare up to severe levels, producing a couple pockets of large hail and some strong winds. An isolated tornado will also be possible in Omaha and to the northeast.

Clouds linger into Friday morning as we cool off into the upper 50s.

We get some sunshine out Friday afternoon, but it will be a lot cooler with highs near 70.

Rain is still looking likely Saturday morning, which could linger into the early afternoon. The rest of the day will be drier, but we only warm into the mid 50s under mostly cloudy skies.

With dry weather and some sunshine Sunday, we warm back into the mid 60s.

Another round of clouds and scattered rain will drop us back to the low to mid 60s Monday.

As we dry out again with more sunshine, we could get back to 70 midweek.
