Southeast storm chances into Sunday

Eastern Nebraska saw some more rain on Saturday morning, with the most rain seen in and around Columbus. As for Lincoln, not as much rain fell and scattered chances into Sunday are likely to not add much more accumulation.

Sunshine returned within Lincoln and surrounding areas for most of the afternoon on Saturday, with high temperatures reaching the low to mid 80s. Rain from this morning did use up some of the energy needed for storms tonight, but another slight risk for severe weather is possible off to the southeast.
