A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for much of the WOWT viewing area - including Omaha - through Midnight.

Storms may carry a large hail threat when they first fire up, but damaging winds will quickly become the main severe threat as the evening progresses and the storms track east. Rainfall amounts will likely stay under ½ inch for most, but a few storms could carry locally higher amounts.

Rain moves out overnight – before the work commute - with clouds decreasing behind. Behind the cold front, northwest winds could still gust up to 50 or 55 mph, so a Wind Advisory remains in effect through 2 AM.
