A mostly dry day is expected for today, although a couple showers are pushing through Eastern Nebraska this morning. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy. Look for highs in the low to mid 70s almost everywhere. Mostly clear skies are expected tonight with lows in the 50s.
Wednesday will be mostly dry and warmer with highs around 80. There is a chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, with the best chance out west. Chances will be better overnight Wednesday night. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible off and on through at least Friday night. There could even be a few lingering showers into Saturday. By Sunday and Monday, dry conditions will settle in to the area with mostly sunny skies.
Severe weather will be possible with the thunderstorm chances Wednesday, Thursday, and possibly Friday. Lack of shear in the atmosphere will likely prevent a more widespread, organized severe weather event, but a decent amount of instability should at least provide some threat of large hail, damaging winds, and possibly isolated tornadoes.
Temperatures will be around the 80 degree mark Wednesday and Thursday, then fall back into the 70s on Friday. Behind a cold front, the weekend will be cooler. Highs on Saturday will only be in the 50s and 60s. Sunday should make it back well into the 60s. 70s are looking like a sure bet for Monday.
