Posted at 5:09 PM, Jun 17, 2024

It will be a warm start to Tuesday morning, We stay hot, humid, and breezy Tuesday with more clouds than sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90, but afternoon clouds may keep things a little cooler in some areas before the storms develop.

A cold front will move into northeast Nebraska by mid-afternoon and start to kick off a broken line of storms. The storms should develop around 2-3 p.m. Some of these storms could be severe with pockets of large hail, areas of damaging wind, and the potential for flash flooding. The storms will form into a line as they move southeast towards Omaha, likely arriving from 5-7 p.m. around the evening commute... and possibly delaying the evening game of the College World Series. The line of storms will continue southeast into Iowa, eventually weakening by 9-10 p.m. when reaching far southwest Iowa, and northwest Missouri. However, the rain could continue for a couple of hours, and we could have some locations with 1-3" of rainfall by Wednesday morning.

Wednesday will be muggy, with scattered rain during the day and slightly cooler air thanks to the cold front stalling south of Omaha. We should get a few hours of dry weather mixed in. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s, under mostly cloudy skies.

The stalled cold front will make way for a warm front Thursday morning, lifting warm, humid air back into the region and leading to another chance for scattered storms. Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.

By Friday, most of the storm activity will have moved far north of Omaha, leading to a mainly dry, but a warm and humid day, in the upper 80s to near 90.

Saturday brings a handful of hit and miss storms, thanks to another cold front, but many of us will start drying out by the evening with highs in the upper 80s.

Sunday should bring increased sunshine and drier weather highs in the upper 80s.
