Rain Chances Climbing Again

Storm chances continue into the weekend
Updated: 2019-05-23 13:37:08Z

Even with a few spotty showers around, most of us are dry this morning with light winds. More clouds push in this afternoon as we warm to near 70 degrees.

Late this evening and into tonight, our next batch of scattered showers and storms move in. A lot of these will stay along and south of I-80, but anyone could see rain Thursday night. A couple storms may even be strong to severe in southern Nebraska. The worst of that rain pushes out before the Friday morning commute. Winds will also be picking up overnight, keep us breezy and mild. Lows will be in the low 60s.

A lot of us then stay dry Friday to finish the workweek, but areas in Omaha and points south and east will have to dodge a few spotty showers and storms, mainly in the second half of the day. The severe weather threat will likely stay down towards NW Missouri.

Over the weekend, anyone could see a spotty shower or storm. A lot of this will be late in the day, with a lot of areas keeping it dry all day. While there won't be many storms to dodge, the ones that do pop up could be on the strong side. Highs will be near 80 degrees.

Rain chances increase for Memorial Day, helping to drop the heat a bit.
