Omaha reached 95 degrees today for the first time since August 20th of last year!
This evening, a few spotty storms will fire off in northeast Nebraska, which then slowly expand south and east tonight with a weak cold front. A couple of these could be severe with large hail and strong winds. An isolated tornado can't be ruled out. While some of storms will try to push towards Omaha around midnight or later, they should weaken before making it to the metro. All of these storms will be spotty, so even north of I-80, many places will stay dry.
Thanks to the overnight cold front, the heat won't be as bad midweek, but we stay humid. Highs will be in the upper 80s Wednesday afternoon with a lot of sunshine. Late Wednesday, a few more scattered storms are possible. This time, most of them will be south of I-80, and again, could be strong to severe.
The heat continues Thursday with highs in the upper 80s. A few more strong to severe storms are possible, but anyone could see these storms. Still some places stay dry.
