Active weather returns on Monday as a cold front approaches. While we could see some spotty showers during the day, storms look much more likely into Monday evening as a line of storms comes in from the west. These storms could be severe with large hail and damaging winds the main threats, but a few tornadoes can not be ruled out either. Omaha is in a level 2/5 severe risk, with southeast Nebraska in a level 3/5 severe risk.

Outside of any storms, Monday looks to be a windy day with gusts up to 40 mph. Before storms arrive, we look to hit the mid 70s for highs on Monday.

The cold front does not make much of an impact on temperatures. Tuesday looks dry and breezy with highs reaching back into the mid 70s.

More showers and a few storms are possible on Wednesday, but most stay dry. There is no severe weather threat with any storms on Wednesday. Highs reach the low 70s.

We cool into the 60s for highs by late week into the weekend with small rain chances on Thursday and Friday.
