Scattered showers and storms become more likely Saturday morning and afternoon, but there should be dry time mixed in too. A cold front moves from west to east through the region in the afternoon, and could fire off some strong to severe storms. The time of concern is generally 1 to 4 pm from west to east across our area. They just begin to develop across eastern Nebraska, but become more common in western Iowa, increasing the severe weather threat there. All types of severe weather will be possible including damaging winds, pockets of large hail, and an isolated tornadoes.

The storms exit the region by late afternoon, but as temperatures fall quickly behind the cold front, a few pockets of snow are possible. No accumulation is expected. The cold front reached Omaha this morning, and will keep our temperatures in the 40s into the early afternoon until the front moves farther southeast.

Sunday will be cooler and a bit breezy, with highs in the low 40s.

There's a chance for snow Sunday night and into Monday morning, but mainly for cities southeast of Omaha. This could bring some minor accumulations.

Monday afternoon will be chilly with upper 30s expected.

Tuesday and Wednesday look a lot better. We get to enjoy more sunshine with highs in the low 50s.

Another chance of rain/snow mix arrives late next week. Temperatures Thursday morning start in the mid 20s and climb near 40 in the afternoon.
