Clouds stumble back in, rain to follow this week

Clouds will continue to increase from west to east tonight, to go along with northeasterly winds sustained at 10 to 15 mph. Those winds will provide an extra chill to the air as overnight lows drop down into the 30s.

Although the best chance of precipitation for tomorrow morning looks to be further up north in Nebraska, a few isolated showers are possible for tomorrow. Generally speaking, areas to the north of I-70 do have the low chance of seeing a rain/snow mix at times. However, the better chance of that happening will be along the Kansas-Nebraska border. Otherwise, we’ll be mostly cloudy tomorrow with isolated showers possible as temperatures warm up into the low 50s.

Easterly winds tomorrow, sustained at 10 to 20 mph, will pick up even more strength for Thursday. Winds will shift out the south for Thursday at 15 to 25 mph, which will try to filter in warmer temperatures. However, that temperature growth will be hindered by another day of mainly cloudy skies and a better chance for rain. The best chance of widespread rain will move in on Friday.

There is the potential for thunderstorm development both Wednesday night into early Thursday, and once again late Thursday into the start of Friday. It’s still uncertain how strong these storms could be as they start popping up. At this time though, the main threats are periods of moderate to heavy rainfall, strong gusts, and the chance for some small hail.

Even looking ahead to next week, we remain unsettled with more rain chances.
