Stormy End to July 4th

More rain into the weekend
Posted at 5:52 AM, Jul 03, 2023

The Fourth of July will be mostly sunny, hot, and muggy. Highs will be in the mid 90s with a heat index closer to 100. In the heat of the day, an isolated shower or storm can't be ruled out, but our best chance for rain will be late in the day. A cold front will kick off a line of storms arriving in northeast Nebraska first, as early as 5pm. The storms will move southeast towards Omaha closer to 9-10 pm, then expand into northwest Missouri closer to midnight.

Some of the storms Tuesday night could be strong to severe. The greatest concern along with the heavy rain and lightning will be pockets of damaging wind and a couple pockets of hail.

Some scattered rain could linger into Wednesday morning, keep a lot of cloud around for the rest of the day. Behind the cold front, it will also be cooler with lower humidity. Highs will be in the upper 70s.

We stay in the upper 70s Thursday with mostly sunny skies and a comfortable amount of humidity.

Friday will be a little warmer with low 80s. There could be a couple isolated storms in the afternoon, but rain becomes more likely Friday night.

We'll keep the small chance for some rain over the weekend as we slowly start to warm up. Saturday will be in the low 80s, followed by mid 80s on Sunday.

Monday looks partly cloudy and dry with mid 80s.
