Storms Return Tuesday, A Few May Be Strong

Warm and drier for the rest of the week
Posted at 5:09 PM, Jun 03, 2024

We start out Tuesday rain-free, but warm and muggy, in the low 70s with partly cloudy skies in the morning, warming in the low 80s by noon.

After 12 p.m., spotty storms will begin developing ahead of a cold front in eastern Nebraska, reaching Omaha around 3-4 p.m., and the rest of western Iowa from 4-8 p.m. It could take until 10 or 11 p.m. for northwest Missouri to completely dry out.

A few of Tuesday's storms could be severe, especially for areas near Omaha and cities farther south and east in western Iowa. The main concern will be for some pockets of hail and damaging wind, but a short-lived tornado can't be ruled out. Unlike this past weekend, flooding does not appear to be a hazard Tuesday.

Wednesday's weather will be a lot more quiet with mostly sunny skies and mid 80s. However, an isolated thundershower will be possible late in the afternoon with another cold frontal passage.

This cold front will help knock down some of the humidity on Thursday, and keeps it a little cooler in the afternoon. We drop to near 80 Thursday with a lot of sunshine.

The highs in the low 80s will continue into Friday, but the humidity will return, with more clouds and a small chance for rain.

The weekend will be much more of the same, some returning heat, increased humidity, and a slight chance for storms. Highs will be in the low 80s with lows in the low 60s.
