Over the past couple of days, we have been dealing with afternoon pop up showers. Today, showers and thunderstorms will be likely through the afternoon and evening hours. No severe weather is expected, however, a few of the stronger storms could produce small hail.
Sunday will be partly sunny and hot. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 80s. Dew points will be in the upper 60s to near 70. This will make tomorrow feel very hot and muggy. This will lead to an atmosphere primed for thunderstorms. Storms will form in central Nebraska, and this is where the best potential for severe weather will be. The storms will continue to push east by early evening Sunday into the overnight hours. By the time the rain enters the state, the dynamics will begin to weaken so the severe threat is low tomorrow. However, it is possible that a few storms could produces small hail and gusty winds.
Weak high pressure will begin to build into the area by Monday night and this will clear things out for a short time. Tuesday a warm front will push northward across southern Iowa. Storms will develop along and north of this warm front. Supercells and organized bow echo systems will be possible. Large hail and widespread damaging wind will be possible along with the potential for a few tornadoes. More rain is likely Wednesday afternoon into Thursday, however, no severe weather is likely with this round. We will continue to keep a close eye on all of these storm chances and will bring you the very latest information online and on social media.
