Omaha fell just shy of tying our record high on Monday by one degree! Don't worry, a couple more records could be at risk of falling later in the week...

Left over from a couple of isolated storms in southwestern Iowa on Monday night, a number of clouds will be around for Tuesday morning, along with a couple of isolated showers. It will be mild with lows in the mid 60s.

Temperatures will vary a lot across the region, thanks to a stalled out cold front, with upper 70s in northeast Nebraska, mid 80s in Omaha, and low 90s in far southeast Nebraska, northwest Missouri, and far southwest Iowa. The wind will be lighter with mostly sunny skies.

Most of us return to the low 90s Wednesday with a mix of sunshine and clouds. We stay in the low 90s Thursday afternoon with a little more wind. Record high for both Wednesday and Thursday is 93 degrees.

A cold front moves in Thursday night, kicking off a line of showers and storms. A couple of these could be strong, but for now, the higher severe weather threat is north of us in the Dakotas and Minnesota.

We then slowly cool off. A couple leftover spotty showers are possible Friday, keeping us mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the low 80s.

We get more and more sunshine the later into the weekend we go as we keep cooling off. Saturday will be in the upper 70s, followed by low 70s on Sunday.
