Severe Storms Possible Friday

Cooler into Mother's Day
Posted at 5:50 AM, May 11, 2023

We'll continue dodging scattered light rain and a few isolated storms overnight and into early Friday morning, but most of us will be dry for the morning commute with temperatures in the low 60s.

Friday will be breezy, warm, and muggy with highs in the low 80s. A cold front will move in from the southwest early in the afternoon, then move northeast the rest of the day. It could start to kick off some spotty storms as early as 3 pm around Lincoln, which move closer to Omaha around the evening commute or shortly after. Storms will become more likely along the front as it moves northeast, with the strongest storms exiting western Iowa around 10 pm.

These storms could easily reach severe levels with pockets of large hail, areas of strong winds, and a couple tornadoes all possible.

Saturday should bring a little more sunshine mixing in with our clouds and a high near 80. A couple isolated storms are possible, mainly north and east of Omaha in the second half of the day, but most of us will be dry all day. The storms could come with hail and strong winds.

Mother's Day will be mostly cloudy as we dodge a few spotty showers. It will also be cooler and less muggy with highs in the mid 70s.

We're likely dry Monday as we keep cooling off. The afternoon will be in the low 70s with low humidity.

We start to warm up into midweek. Tuesday will be in the upper 70s with a mix of sunshine and clouds. With even more sunshine Wednesday, we should get to 80.

The low 80s continue Thursday with a few more clouds and a small chance for rain.
