A few spotty showers will be possible early Thursday morning, clearing up before noon. It will be a cloudy, windy day with gusts up to 40 mph, and highs in the upper 60s. After sunset, another round of storms will move in to eastern Nebraska, becoming widespread overnight. These storms may have some hail and strong winds. Otherwise, severe weather will be limited Thursday night.

Heading into Friday, rain and storms will continue on and off all day. Severe weather will be possible in the afternoon and evening hours when the atmosphere is more unstable. Pockets of large hail and damaging winds will be possible along with a tornado or two across the region. Strong wind around 40 mph will continue to blow in warmer weather, pushing us into the mid 70s. The rain should end by late Friday night.

There's still a good chance we're dry for the Nebraska spring game Saturday morning and into the afternoon... and could even squeeze out some sunshine as we warm into the upper 70s. Scattered storms start to pop up again later in the afternoon and become more widespread into Saturday night. Some of these storms could also be severe, especially southeast of Omaha.

Thunderstorms will continue into Sunday as a cold front moves through the region. This will hold daytime temperatures back in the low 70s. If we get enough dry time mixed in early in the day, some of these storms could once again strengthen to severe levels. Rain should exit the region by Sunday evening.

With multiple rounds of storms, flooding could be a concern, especially later in the weekend.

We start out the next workweek a little cooler, but drier, with Monday's highs in the mid 60s and mostly sunny skies.

Another round of rain will be possible late Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s.
