More wet weather is on its way into the eastern Nebraska-western Iowa area, and that precipitation could begin tonight.
Josh Boustead, a forecaster with the National Weather Service Office in Valley, Neb., said there is a good chance of rain or a rain-snow mix over the next few days.
He said the Omaha area can expect a low tonight in the lower 50s and high chance of precipitation — 70 percent to 80 percent.
That 70 to 80 percent chance of precipitation continues through Tuesday night, he said, with a high temperature Tuesday in the lower 60s.
Wednesday should see a high in the lower 40s, the forecaster said, with rain chances continuing.
Temperatures drop into the lower 30s Wednesday night when the precipitation could turn into a rain-snow mix that may continue into Thurssday morning.
Conditions won't begin to dry out until Thursday, said Van DeWald, another weather service forecaster, as the rainy system moves east.
The eastern Nebraska-western Iowa area could receive a total of up to 1 1/2 inches of precipitation over the next few days, DeWald said. Also, there is a chance of severe weather — hail and strong winds — tonight through Wednesday night, he said.
Central and northeast Nebraska may receive freezing rain beginning tonight through Wednesday and into early Thursday, DeWald said. Spring weather in the area can often mean a mix of winterlike conditions and severe thunderstorms, he said.
