After midnight, strong to severe storms will start to push into northeast Nebraska around 2-3am, which push towards Omaha closer to 4-6 am. By 6-7am, most of the storms will begin moving into southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri.

Some of the overnight storms could be severe with damaging winds being our main concern. A few pockets of hail and an isolated tornado are also possible.

Expect a rainy commute the Wednesday morning, but the trends do begin to turn drier as the morning goes on, after 8-9am.

While the rain and storms may plague the morning, drier conditions are expected by the afternoon. Only isolated storms south of the Omaha metro will be possible and the heat plus humidity will not be as bad, either! Skies will become partly cloudy Wednesday afternoon with highs in the upper 80s, heat indices only near 90, nearly 10 degrees cooler in "feels-like temp" compared to Tuesday.

Thursday will also warm, but seasonal with highs in the upper 80s. While mainly dry, some spotty rain and storms will be possible. Friday will be very similar with many of us staying dry and highs in the mid 80s.

For now, we'll just keep a small rain chance in for the weekend. Saturday will be in the mid 80s before a weak cold front drops us into the low 80s Sunday.
