Overnight, a few clouds start to push in, and the wind begins to strengthen. This keeps us warmer, in the upper 40s for Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will be warm and windy, with most of eastern Nebraska climbing into the low 80s. Western Iowa will be a touch cooler with highs in the mid and upper 70s. There will be a number of clouds around, which could give way to some scattered sprinkles, but there should be some afternoon sunshine.

Then we have to watch for two rounds of storms, both of which could be strong to severe. Shortly after the evening commute, a few spotty storms could develop in eastern Nebraska, then push east into western Iowa. These will not be widespread, but could be very strong supercell storms. This gives a higher threat for tornadoes and extra-large hail.

A cold front comes through later in the night, moving from west to east, which kicks off a better chance for storms. These may not develop until the cold front gets closer to far eastern Nebraska, which may spare some our of western cities like York and Columbus from the stormy weather. Storms become more likely around 8 to 9 pm towards the Omaha metro, then expand into western Iowa. The bulk of the storms are likely out of western Iowa by 2 am. The greatest threat with the line of storms will be damaging winds, but pockets of hail and weaker tornadoes are also possible.

Behind the cold front, Wednesday will be colder and windy. Highs will be in the low 50s. We may have to dodge a few raindrops and snowflakes during the day, mainly in western Iowa.

The wind won't be as strong Thursday, but still breezy. The sunshine will be back, but we stay in the low 50s.

A few more clouds move in Friday with highs in the mid 50s.

The 50s continue this weekend with a small chance for some rain and snow late Saturday and into Easter Sunday.
