Wednesday will be mostly dry and warmer with highs around 80. There is a chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but better chances will come overnight from showers and thunderstorms that develop out west later today. The severe weather threat is low, but not completely unlikely. The best chance will be in Western Nebraska.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible during the day on Thursday, with the best chance early being in Eastern Nebraska. Meanwhile, the big question is will we have clouds that stick around all day or will the sunshine come out. This will have a big impact on our severe weather threat later in the day. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop later in the afternoon with the best chance on the west. That said, anyone could see storms develop. Those storms will move through overnight, but some may see training of storms with a flash flooding threat. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threat, but I'm not going to completely rule out an isolated tornado threat. Highs Thursday will reach the 70s to lower 80s.

Friday will continue to hold chances of showers and thunderstorms as a cold front passes through. The chance of severe weather will not be nearly as high as Thursday. Look for highs in the 70s, but temperatures may drop behind the front.

Beyond Friday night, it will likely be dry Saturday through Tuesday of next week before showers and thunderstorms return next Wednesday. The weekend will be cooler , but mild with 60s Saturday and 70s Sunday. Lows will be in the 40s for most. The 80s will return for Monday and Tuesday.

A mostly dry day is expected for today, although a couple showers are pushing through Eastern Nebraska this morning. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy. Look for highs in the low to mid 70s almost everywhere. Mostly clear skies are expected tonight with lows in the 50s.

Wednesday will be mostly dry and warmer with highs around 80. There is a chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, with the best chance out west. Chances will be better overnight Wednesday night. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible off and on through at least Friday night. There could even be a few lingering showers into Saturday. By Sunday and Monday, dry conditions will settle in to the area with mostly sunny skies.

Severe weather will be possible with the thunderstorm chances Wednesday, Thursday, and possibly Friday. Lack of shear in the atmosphere will likely prevent a more widespread, organized severe weather event, but a decent amount of instability should at least provide some threat of large hail, damaging winds, and possibly isolated tornadoes.

Temperatures will be around the 80 degree mark Wednesday and Thursday, then fall back into the 70s on Friday. Behind a cold front, the weekend will be cooler. Highs on Saturday will only be in the 50s and 60s. Sunday should make it back well into the 60s. 70s are looking like a sure bet for Monday.

It was a chilly start to the day, but temperatures are rising quickly. With lots of sunshine and winds under 10 mph, this afternoon will feel great with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Tonight, almost everybody can say goodbye to the 30s until next fall. Most of us will stay in the 40s with increasing clouds. Already on Friday, a chance of rain will return. This should hold highs down into the 50s and 60s. The coolest conditions will be under the thickest clouds and showers in Central and especially Western Nebraska. Chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue into Friday night and Saturday morning. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. Look for highs Saturday in the 60s.

Sunday features a continued chance for showers and thunderstorms with highs in the 60s and 70s. The rest of the forecast through Wednesday features a 20% to 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms for each time period. The way it's looking right now, no organized storms systems are apparent next week, but with more instability, severe thunderstorms will be possible for some. So while rain is in the forecast, mainly will stay dry much of that time. Temperatures will keep climbing through the 70s and eventually get up to around 80 by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today will be another raw day will clouds holding tough and keeping us quite cool again. Look for highs in the low to mid 50s with a continued chance of very light rain or drizzle. Skies will partially clear up tonight, allowing for temperatures for many to fall into the mid to upper 30s. For some, it may be cold enough for patchy frost. There are no advisories out at this time.

After that chilly start, Thursday will be a quiet day with highs back into the 60s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Already on Friday, a chance of rain will return. This should hold highs down into the 50s and lower 60s. Chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue into Friday night and Saturday morning. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. Chances of severe weather remain in question and will be determined by the degree of instability. Forecast models still do not have a good grasp on this.. For now, look for highs Saturday in the 60s. If it gets into the 70s, severe weather may be more of a possibility.

There are still chances for showers and thunderstorms Sunday through Tuesday, but the chance at this point is much smaller. If anything does fire, severe weather would be a possibility. Highs on Sunday and Memorial Day will be in the lower to mid 70s. By Tuesday, mid to upper 70s are possible.

Clouds have already started to move in, and eventually showers will too. Showers have moved into Western Nebraska this morning and will make their way to Central Nebraska this afternoon. Eastern Nebraska probably won't see rain until Tuesday evening. The best chance for showers will be overnight Tuesday night where many could pick up 0.50" to 1.00" of rain. Some showers could linger into Wednesday morning, but most should be gone by Wednesday afternoon. Look for highs Tuesday to be in the 40s and 50s, then the 50s on Saturday with clouds still around.

After a chilly start, Thursday will be a quiet day with highs back into the 60s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Already on Friday, a chance of rain will return. This should hold highs down into the 50s and 60s. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will continue into Friday night and Saturday morning. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible Saturday and Saturday night. Chances of severe weather remain in question and will be determined by the degree of instability and the position of a warm front as it lifts northward. For now, look for highs Saturday in the 60s.

There is still a chance of showers and thunderstorms Sunday and the potential for severe storms is there. The chance for rain is small on Memorial Day, but severe weather would be possible if storms do fire. Temperatures look to be in the lower 70s, but would be warmer those days if we see more sun.

A seasonably cool week is ahead of us as temperatures likely won't get back to average mid to late May readings until possibly Sunday. Rain will continue to be a part of the picture with a couple of really good chances.

Starting with today, we'll have dry conditions with partly to mostly sunny skies and a breezy north and northwest wind. We'll see highs range from the upper 50s north to the upper 60s south. It will be chilly tonight with lows in the 30s and 40s. A FROST ADVISORY is in effect for Northern Nebraska for early tomorrow morning.

Clouds will increase Tuesday as chances of rain pick up. Showers will start in the morning in the west and move into the middle of Nebraska by the afternoon. Eastern Nebraska probably won't see rain until Tuesday evening. The best chance for showers will be overnight Tuesday night where many could pick up 0.50" to 1.00" of rain. Some showers could linger into Wednesday morning, but most should be gone by Wednesday afternoon. Look for highs Tuesday and Wednesday to be in the 40s and 50s.

Thursday will be a quiet day with highs back into the 60s under partly cloudy skies. Already on Friday, a chance of rain and thunderstorms will return. This should hold highs down into the 50s and 60s. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will continue into Friday night and Saturday morning.

Saturday could be the most interesting day of the next seven as it doesn't hold the best chance for severe thunderstorms. There are still some major questions about things like more convection and clouds cover and how warm it will actually be. So while showers and thunderstorms are likely, the severe weather probabilities remain in question. Highs on Saturday look to be in the 60s and 70s.

Sunday will feature a chance of lingering showers and thunderstorms with highs in the 70s.

While much, if not all of the day will be nice and quiet, showers and thunderstorms enter the picture for much of the rest of the week.  But we will finally get a bit of a break with several dry days to come.  Check out the forecast as we work our way through the last part of May and look forward to the month of June.

Quieter weather is expected today with only slight chances of rain, but more thunderstorms are in the forecast in the not so distant future.  Check out the briefing for what to expect in this shortened work week.

After a chilly start, Thursday sees a return to much nicer weather.  Today is the only day of the next week ahead that doesn't include at least a slight chance of rain.  Find out more about or rain chances and if they include the threat of severe thunderstorms.  It's all in this morning's briefing.

Another raw day is expected and it is going to take a little time to get our weather back to more typical late May weather.  Along with that, there are more chances of rain in the forecast.  Find out when in today's weather briefing.

Showers will pass through over the next 24 hours, but many more chances of rain are coming.  This will have an impact on the upcoming holiday weekend for those with plans.  Check out the briefing to find out what's in store.

Cooler weather will stick with us for the week ahead as more rain is in the forecast.  As for severe weather, that still remains a question to be answered.  Get the details of the week ahead in this morning's briefing.

My wife and I went here for lunch and it was terrible. The atmosphere is boring. The food was terrible. The staff seemed like they didn't want to be there. I would not recommend this place to anybody. We were not looking for a big meal, so we stayed away from the buffet. We ordered the chicken quesadilla and onion rings. The onion rings were huge, but very bland. They tasted like bread and water. We had to ask for ranch just to add some flavor. The quesadilla was a little better, but you could get one much better and cheap at Dairy Queen, which isn't saying much. I'm not normally picky about my food, so getting a 1 star rating from me means something.
