The front touched off a round of heavy rain at times Monday morning in the Omaha area. Temperatures top out in the mid to low 90s with a southeast breeze at 7-17 miles per hour.

Any stronger storms that develop could drop very heavy rain and have wind gusts as high as 50-60 miles per hour, forecasters said. Some will have locally heavy rain, but the risk of severe weather is very low.

Tuesday will also feature just scattered showers and storms, with highs holding in the low 90s.

The partly cloudy/party sunny mix should continue through the rest of the week, with highs in the 70s.
