A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for parts of our area including the Omaha and Lincoln metro areas. This goes until 4 am for the potential for damaging wind, large hail, and an isolated tornado. Have a way to get alerts overnight.

A cold front will stall across the I-80 corridor this evening, and begins to fire off some spotty storms shortly after the evening commute (7 pm). The storms become more widespread early tonight (9-10 pm) and likely reach severe levels. Large hail and damaging winds are the most likely hazards, but an isolated tornado is also possible.

A few spotty showers could linger into Wednesday morning, but most of the day will be dry. We pull back the heat and humidity slightly with highs in the low 80s and partly cloudy skies. As the cold front makes its final push out of the region late in the day, a couple spotty showers are possible towards northwest Missouri.

We push back into the low 90s Thursday with mostly sunny skies. An isolated shower or storm is possible late in the day, but most of us will be dry.

The low 90s continue Friday with a lot of sunshine for the first games of the College World Series.

With more wind, we really heat up again over the weekend. Saturday will be in the mid 90s, and we could get close to 100 again for Father's Day.
