Missouri River Flooding: Flooding will continue along the Missouri River this weekend. Check out this blog for the latest information on where water levels are falling and how much higher other parts of the river will get.

Forecast: The wind will continue to lighten up this afternoon, but the heat and humidity are still climbing. Highs will be in the upper 80s. A cold front will also be working it way southeast through the region in the second half of the day. While many of us stay dry all day, the cold front will kick off a few isolated storms. Northeast Nebraska may only have to dodge some spotty rain, but spotty storms are more likely once the front gets closer to I-80 and Omaha around the evening commute. By about 8 p.m., most of the storms will be southeast of Omaha, then exit northwest Missouri by midnight. Any of these storms could be severe with large hail and damaging wind. A couple tornadoes are also possible in the region today, with the greater threat for that southeast of Omaha.

We completely dry out tonight with temperatures falling into the upper 70s for the Memorial Park fireworks.

Saturday looks great with low 80s, some extra wind, lower humidity, and a lot of sunshine.

Before heading to bed Saturday night, open up your windows and let some of the cooler weather in! We'll be dropping into the upper 50s for Sunday morning.

We may not even make it to 80 Sunday afternoon. The humidity stays low with mostly sunny skies. There could be a couple showers around Sunday night, but most of us stay dry.

Rain and storms look a lot more likely Monday and Tuesday, but even with the rain around, we'll warm back up into the 80s both afternoons.

There will at least be some scattered storms to dodge Wednesday and on Thursday for the 4th of July.
