The wind will be a lot lighter tonight, then we cool off into the upper 30s for Thursday morning.

We keep warming up Thursday with more sunshine. Highs will be in the low 70s with clouds moving in to end the day. While most of the day looks dry, scattered rain and storms will move in from the south Thursday evening and into Thursday night. A couple of these storms could reach strong to severe levels, mainly along and south of I-80. The main threats will be damaging winds and a couple pockets of larger hail. The severe threat will end at night, but some of the leftover rain could linger into early Friday morning.

Friday afternoon looks dry with a mix of sunshine and clouds. With strong winds out of the south, we will warm into the low 80s. Late Friday, another round of scattered storms will move in, this time from the west. They will weaken as they move east, putting the greater threat for severe weather in eastern Nebraska compared to western Iowa.

A cold front arrives Saturday afternoon, but we will likely have enough time to warm into the upper 70s with strong winds still blowing in from the south. The cold front could fire off a line of strong to severe storms from the afternoon to the evening.

Cooler weather then blows in for Sunday. It will be breezy with highs in the low 60s and a mix of sunshine and clouds.

The weather will be a lot more quiet early next week. Highs will be in the low 60s Monday and Tuesday with a lot of sunshine and lighter winds.
