Yes, there is more stormy weather headed in our direction.
Barbara Mayes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Valley, Neb., which handles eastern Nebraska and western Iowa, said Tuesday that a storm system bringing rain, gusty winds and possibly small hail was headed east toward Omaha and should arrive by midmorning.
“We're not expecting widespread severe weather like we had yesterday,'' she said.
Crews still are working to restore power to 10,141 customers who lost electricity in Monday morning's storm. Omaha Public Power District said it could be midnight Wednesday before everyone has power restored.
Additional storms are likely to reform Tuesday afternoon and tonight, Mayes said, mainly to the north and northeast of Omaha.
A high temperature of around 93 degrees is forecast for Tuesday in Omaha, Mayes said. The heat index, which combines temperature and humidity, should reach 100.
Temperatures should remain in the 90s for the next couple of days, she said, until a front moves through Thursday into Thursday night that will leave high temperatures in the 80s on Friday. Weekends highs should be around normal, Mayes added, which is the lower to mid-80s.
