Rain and Storms a Daily Threat

KRBC AM Forecast: Monday, August 7, 2017

But the upper air pattern from the northwest to southeast will bring several more disturbances (storm systems) across the state including later Friday night and Saturday morning and possibly Saturday night late into Sunday morning. Much of the midday into afternoon could end up dry, with a second risk of rain picking up by afternoon into evening, when a few storms may fire as a front approaches. Temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

Gusty winds and hail are possible with the stronger storms south and east of Billings. 50% chance of rain on Sunday with highs in the upper 80s. East southeast wind 5 to 7 miles per hour.

Rain chances will increase on Monday, and appear highest on Tuesday as a more focused disturbance crosses the area. You'll have mostly dry weather Sunday before another round of storms enters the area for Sunday night. What once looked like a few rounds of widespread, heavy rain - now looks like pretty isolated rain chances (at best).

Most days carry little or no threat of rain. A shower possible but it's not likely.

"Friday's coverage of thunderstorms decreases, but any of them that develop could get heavy quickly (up to 1" of rain possible from any single downpour).

Tue: High: 85 Low: 67 Partly cloudy.

Below-normal temperatures are expected to continue for the rest of the week and into early next week in the Omaha area. Highs next week will reach the upper 80s. Low tide on Friday will be at 6:38 p.m., while Saturday low tides will be at 7:02 a.m. and 7:27 p.m.

Saturday will likely start pretty wet with periods of showers and storms around. We're behind the cold front, so skies are clearer as well, with partly to mostly sunny conditions expected.
