Early Sunday AM May 1st Update

Good early Sunday morning, everyone. After we picked up a good soaking with rain and t-storms on Friday, Saturday turned out to be pretty good! With highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s under partly to mostly sunny skies, Saturday was a great day to enjoy time outside. As far as the overnight and start of our Sunday morning is concerned, any t-storms are well east of us and rain on the radar below is mainly in Nebraska…

The rotating rain in Nebraska is actually due to an upper level low that’s working across the state and moving east. While it doesn’t actually move across our area, it does swing close by to give a few spots a few showers as we go into Sunday afternoon. You can see the Future Track below backing up that idea of maybe a few showers popping up under otherwise partly sunny skies for your Sunday…

With a west wind at 5-10 mph under partly sunny skies and a few showers that could pop up, expect today to be a little bit cooler compared to yesterday. We should see afternoon highs right around 66°…

After this disturbance moves out (along with the chance for a few showers) this evening, we stay mostly cloudy as we drop back into the middle 40s by Monday morning. Throughout the day, another disturbance southwest of here will work in and keep skies mostly cloudy. That disturbance will also bring rain chances in here during our Monday…

Because of the mostly cloudy skies, rain chances and a north wind for Monday, it will be cool compared to the norm of early May. If things unfold as expected, we may see highs on Monday only top out near 60°…

For the middle of the week, we’ll be bouncing between the 60s and 70s for highs Tuesday through Thursday while we see partly to mostly sunny skies. We continue to stay mild and even warm up by this coming weekend as we’ll see another storm system work in by Friday and Saturday.

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Remember that you can sign up for WeatherCall by clicking the WeatherCall link at the top of the page. WeatherCall, in our opinion, is the best tool on the market to keep you safe during severe weather.

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

May 8th-14th:  Warm with a chance for thunderstorms on Sunday.  Warm temperatures continue through most of the week with good chances for thunderstorms Wednesday through Saturday.  We should have good chances for severe weather through the period.
