A large majority of the storms have moved east out of the region, but we'll continue dodging a few leftover spotty showers and storms through the afternoon and evening. While most of us stay dry the rest of the day, the spotty storms that pop up could spin up a quick tornado or pockets of hail. A Tornado Watch is in effect for counties north of Omaha in both eastern Nebraska and western Iowa through 7 p.m. Tuesday. Review your safety plan with your family and have multiple ways to get warnings, just in case one is issued for your neighborhood.

It will stay windy Tuesday afternoon with highs only in the mid 70s. The warmest part of the day will be the early afternoon, then colder air starts to blow in dropping us into the 60s by the evening commute.

We finish drying out overnight as we cool off into the upper 40s for Wednesday morning.

Skies clear early Wednesday, then we see more sunshine than clouds in the afternoon. It will be windy and cooler with highs in the mid 60s.

Another round of rain starts to move in late Wednesday night and continues into Thursday morning. We'll dry out in the afternoon, but it will be even cooler... and still breezy. Highs will be in the mid 50s.

For our gardeners with plants sensitive to the cold, temperatures could be near or below freezing multiple mornings in a row, starting Friday and continuing this weekend.

The wind lightens up more Friday, and we'll get some sunshine mixed in with our clouds. It stays cool, in the mid 50s.

Saturday will be partly cloudy with temperatures staying below average, in the low 50s. Sunday looks a little nicer with mostly sunny skies and upper 50s.

We'll try to get back to average Monday with mid 60s and a small chance for rain.
