Rain Returns For The Weekend

Big Temperature Drop
Posted at 5:23 AM, Sep 08, 2022

We stay mostly clear overnight with Omaha cooling off into the mid 60s. Like recent mornings, we could see a few pockets of fog in southwest Iowa.

We start Friday with a lot of sunshine, but clouds push in during the second half of the day as our next cold front moves in. The cooler air moves into northeast Nebraska first, which could keep highs there under 70 degrees. Cities along I-80, including Omaha, likely have enough time to reach the mid 80s. Farther south, upper 80s will be possible.

A couple isolated showers and storms kick off Friday night, mainly north of Omaha, keeping most of our high school football games dry.

Scattered showers and storms become more widespread across the region by late Saturday morning. The rain will continue at times in the afternoon, and it could linger into Saturday night. When dry, it will be mostly cloudy and a lot cooler. Highs will be in the upper 60s.

Sunday starts with clouds, but we should see some sunshine in the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 70s with very low humidity.

We warm back up into the upper 70s to low 80s Monday and Tuesday with mostly sunny skies.

The mid 80s return Wednesday, which is just above average for this time of year.

A slight rain chance is back for next Thursday.
