A cool and dreary day

A narrow region of light to moderate rain setup over portions of Gage, Pawnee, Richardson, Johnson, and Nemaha counties overnight Sunday. Some of those areas received over 1″ of rain. That area of precipitation will let up in intensity early Monday, but light rain does hang around.

More light showers will be possible in southeast Nebraska through the day. Monday will be a gray day overall, with clouds, mist, drizzle, and shower activity. The general trend is for rain to taper off as the day wears on. We’ll be cloudy and mostly dry by evening, although some isolated pockets of drizzle cannot be ruled out.

Stormcast Monday Afternoon

We expect most of the rain to be fairly light, so accumulations will also be on the lighter side throughout the day. The heaviest totals will likely reside in far southeast Nebraska, in areas that saw the bulk of the rain before sunrise. The following is what one version of Stormcast suggests for rain totals past 6 a.m. Monday.

Stormcast Precipitation Potential

Temperatures will not budge too much as the day progresses. Most are starting off in the 50s, and we’ll likely remain in the 50s into the afternoon.

Monday Forecast

Tuesday may feature low clouds to start, but sunshine dominates eventually. That will help push temperatures into the middle and upper-70s. By Wednesday, we’ll see highs returning to the 80s.
