A flood watch is in effect for much of northeast Nebraska tonight, as 1-5" of rainfall may be possible, which could lead to street and fiver flooding into Tuesday morning.

Missouri River Flooding: Water levels are falling along some parts of the Missouri River, but they are still climbing downstream. 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: Heavy rain and flooding will continue overnight. If you come across any water-covered road, do not attempt to drive through it and seek an alternate route. Rain will continue until early Tuesday morning.

We start to dry out for a few hours Tuesday morning, and temperatures will warm back in the upper 70s to low 80s. Any sunshine will also start to warm the atmosphere, possibly allowing for severe weather in the afternoon. Some of these storms could also be severe with the threat for large hail, damaging wind, and a couple of tornadoes. The storms continue into the evening, but should weaken before ending at night.

A lot more of us will be able to avoid the rain Wednesday, but it will get hotter, with highs in the upper 80s.

There will be a lot more showers and storms across the region on Thursday, so have a backup indoor option for your 4th of July plans. Highs will be in the mid 80s.

Friday brings a lot more dry time, and it will be a touch cooler, with low 80s and some sunshine.

We warm back into the mid 80s Saturday, but it comes with a few spotty showers and storms to avoid.

We'll continue to dodge some hit and miss storms Sunday with upper 80s.
