Hopeful Weekend Forecast For Rain

The Omaha office of the National Weather Service says, believe it or not, the region will see increasing rain chances beginning Sunday night and continuing into Tuesday.

While not a drought buster, this rain event could be a bit more widespread with locations from northeast Nebraska into southwest Iowa having the best chance of seeing 1” or more.

This hopeful news comes as drought conditions continue to expand in Nebraska.

This week's National Drought Monitor Map shows 4-percent of the state is now in exceptional drought, the worst drought level measured.

That comes as 13-percent of Nebraska is now in extreme drought.

Only 4.5-percent of the state isn't reporting some sort of abnormal dryness or drought.
