A few scattered storms are possible overnight, but should stay well to the west of Omaha, out towards a line from Columbus to Beatrice. Scattered light rain will become more common for the rest of the region heading into the Tuesday morning commute as we cool off to about 60 degrees.

Tuesday afternoon will bring a lot of dry time, but also a lot of clouds, keeping highs in the upper 70s for another day. Spotty storms start to fire off again late in the afternoon, then become more widespread heading into Tuesday night. Some of these storms will likely be severe, with the greatest threat southwest of Omaha. The threat gets lower as you head farther northeast through the region. All types of severe weather will be possible including large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes.

Wednesday brings a break from all the wet weather. We'll see a mix of sunshine and clouds, warming us up into the upper 70s.

Thursday will start dry, but in the second half of the day, showers and storms become more likely again. Some of these could be strong to severe, especially in eastern Nebraska, but the greatest severe potential is currently shaping up to be in the central part of Nebraska. Highs should stay in the upper 70s, depending on the exact timing of the rain.

Some leftover rain could linger into Friday morning. Most of the day looks dry, and cooler, with highs in the low 70s.

We rapidly warm back up over the weekend with a small chance for rain Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 70s Saturday afternoon, followed by mid 80s on Sunday.
