Severe Storm Threat Returns This Weekend

Dry start to the weekend
Posted at 6:45 AM, May 24, 2024

The severe storms have ended, and we will be mostly sunny the rest of the afternoon! It will also be breezy and cooler with highs in the low 70s.

It gets pretty cool overnight and into Saturday morning as we drop into the upper 40s.

Saturday starts with a lot of sunshine, but clouds will start to move in during the afternoon. It will be breezy and warmer with highs in the upper 70s.

Scattered storms push into southeast Nebraska after 9 p.m., then expand northeast later in the night. A couple of these storms could be severe with some pockets of hail and strong wind. The greater severe threat will be south of Omaha since the storms will weaken later in the night.

Some of the rain continues into Sunday morning, but we will get some dry time midday. It will be mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s. By the evening, another round of showers and storms moves into the region, which continues Sunday night. There will be a small severe threat southeast of Omaha, but most storms should stay below severe levels.

Most of us will be dry for Memorial Day, but there could still be a couple spotty showers around for us to dodge. It should be comfortable with some sunshine and highs in the mid 70s.

Tuesday looks mostly sunny with upper 70s.

We stay in the upper 70s Wednesday with a few more clouds and a small chance for rain.

The small chance for rain continues Thursday with highs near 80.
