Scattered light to moderate rain will continue to slowly push farther north the rest of the afternoon with most of the area likely seeing some rain by the evening commute. Highs will be near 68.

We could get a break from the rain early tonight, but another wave of stronger storms with a lot of heavy rain arrives overnight. A lot of this could hold off until midnight or later. It will travel from west to east through the area. The severe threat is fairly low, but a couple of the strongest storms could produce some pockets of hail or strong wind. With more heavy rain overnight, flash flooding will be a concern. If you come across a flooded road, turn around, don't drown.

Most of the region will dry out just in time for the Thursday morning commute as we cool off into the low 50s. The leftover pockets of rain and a few storms will be more stubborn in far southeast Nebraska, northwest Missouri, and southwest Iowa. Those areas will be dodging some wet weather through the afternoon. Other parts of eastern Nebraska should enjoy some sunshine Thursday afternoon, helping to warm some spots into the mid 60s. Wet or dry, everyone will be breezy.

Friday looks comfortable with partly cloudy skies and low 70s.

Another round of rain and storms moves through the region Friday night and into Saturday morning. Thankfully the severe threat is very low.

Saturday afternoon will be drier with some sunshine and upper 60s.

We will end Berkshire weekend on Sunday with low 70s and a small chance for rain late in the day.

Rain and storms are more likely Monday with upper 70s... and unfortunately, some of the storms could be severe.
