LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - More rounds of severe weather are expected as we head into the first part of the work week. Overall, the forecast over the next week will continue to be headlined by more active weather with chances for severe storms as well as some heavy rain over the course of the next week as much of the state could see several inches of moisture over the next 7 days.

Scattered showers and t’storms will be possible Monday morning. The better chance for severe weather will be later this afternoon and evening. Some of the storms could be severe.

Into Monday afternoon, temperatures won’t move much from where they’ve been the past few days. Look for highs in the upper 70s to lower and middle 80s by the afternoon with breezy south winds at 10 to 20 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH possible.

Again, the extended forecast is highlighted by daily chances for showers and thunderstorms - nothing unusual for late May. Keep an eye on the Wednesday night into Thursday time frame as areas of heavy rain could be possible across the state as the low-level jet is forecast to potentially keep training thunderstorms setup across the area. Cooler weather is then in the forecast for Friday with highs in the lower 70s. It also appears that Friday could be one of our drier days over the next 7. Temperatures will then begin to tick back up into Memorial Day weekend with some low-end chances for showers and thunderstorms in the forecast as the upper level pattern will revert back to a more southerly and southwesterly flow aloft.

Temperatures remain in the low 80s through early this week before cooler weather tries to move...
