Temperatures will be warm this week ranging from the mid 80s to low 90s.

A broad ridge of high pressure slowly eases off farther to our east, and a slow moving storm that is dissipating as it closes in, moves in our direction.

Ryan McPike, a KMTV meteorologist, said the enhanced risk means the Omaha area could get heavy rain, high winds, hail and possibly a tornado. Warm temperatures and low humidity will create elevated fire weather concerns, however winds will be mainly light.

Wednesday|Showers and thunderstorms late. At higher elevations, isolated rain showers, thunderstorms and snow showers in the evening.

Wednesday looks to offer an even greater possibility of showers, with a 50 percent chance of precipitation.
