With more sunshine than expected today, we've warmed up a bit more than anticipated, with afternoon temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 80s and lower 90s.
Much of eastern Nebraska is still under a slight risk for severe weather, so the potential for strong to severe storms to develop through the evening is there, although with lack of development this afternoon, chances are decreasing that we'll see those storms develop.
Overnight tonight, skies should stay partly to mostly cloudy with near average lows in the mid to upper 60s. Winds will remain a bit breezy out of the south at 10-20 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH being possible.
A cold front will slowly drift across the viewing area on Wednesday. leading to shower and thunderstorm development during the afternoon hours across southeastern Nebraska. Storms that do develop will again have the potential to be strong to severe. Skies will be mostly cloudy again on Wednesday, and temperatures should be slightly cooler in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Shower and storm chances will continue into the overnight hours and into the early parts of Thursday morning. Then for Thursday, skies will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s.
