After a sunny start to the day, we'll see more clouds mix in this afternoon. They'll ring out a few spotty showers this afternoon, but most of us stay dry. It will also be warmer today, with highs in the upper 70s.

Skies will clear early tonight, giving us a good chance to see the Aurora borealis, or northern lights! The lights are forecast to be visible to the naked eye as far south as all of Nebraska and Iowa. The best viewing will be after midnight and away from city lights. Look north for at least a green glow along the horizon. If we're lucky, we could see even more.

Saturday looks great with a lot of sunshine, lighter wind, and a high near 80 degrees!

While some spots stay dry on Mother's Day, some scattered showers and storms will be around, especially in the second half of the day. Those who stay dry will be in the upper 70s with more clouds than sunshine.

Some of the rain continues Monday, especially south of I-80. Cities farther north have a better chance of staying dry. Highs will be in the low 70s.

Most of us will be dry Tuesday, and a little warmer, with upper 70s and more sunshine.

Wednesday will be in the mid 70s. After a dry start to the day, another round of rain moves in during the second half of the day, which could continue into Thursday morning.

Thursday afternoon will be mostly cloudy with mid 70s.
