The thunderstorms that blew through the Omaha area Friday night brought heavy rain, lightning and high winds, but damage reports were minimal.
The National Weather Service said that as of 11 p.m., 1.37 inches of rain had fallen at Omaha's Eppley Airfield.
Rainfall totals were higher elsewhere in the city, with 1.90 inches recorded at 84th and Blondo Streets and 1.50 inches at 35th and Charles Streets.
Nearly 3,300 customers of the Omaha Public Power District were without power as of 11:45 p.m. Most of the outages were in Sarpy County.
There were no reports of significant storm damage, said Becky Kern, meteorologist with the weather service in Valley.
Kern said the next round of storms in the region could come Saturday afternoon.
Some downed trees were reported in La Vista, including one at Park View Boulevard and Terry Drive.
The large hail that forecasters had feared generally did not materialize, though pea-sized hail was reported in west Omaha's Candlewood neighborhood and nickel-sized hail in the Elkhorn area and in Valley.
A tornado warning was issued earlier Friday evening in Cuming County, Nebraska, but there were no confirmed sightings and no damage reports.
A tornado watch for the metropolitan area was canceled shortly after 9 p.m. as heavy rains pelted downtown Omaha following the weather-shortened opening ceremonies of the College World Series.
The event started 15 minutes earlier, around 8:15 p.m. It lasted 15 minutes Friday (instead of an hour, like previously planned).
There were some fireworks on a smaller scale, shot off from the TD Ameritrade Park outfield to help emphasize the dramatic team-by-team introductions of each squad participating in the CWS.
A longer fireworks show took place later, after the storm had passed through the metro area, but many people had left TD Ameritrade Park by that time.
In Council Bluffs, the weather forced the cancellation of a concert at the Stir Concert Cove.
Fans of Silversun Pickups and The Joy Formidable only saw about 30 minutes of music Friday before being rained out.
The concert was eventually postponed, and Stir Cove said it hoped to reschedule the concert. Concertgoers were encouraged to hold onto their tickets in case the concert is rescheduled. The venue will make an announcement at a later date.
Welsh rock band The Joy Formidable took the stage for a short set that included songs such as "The Ladder is Ours" and other tunes full of big, fuzzy guitars, thick bass lines and driving drum beats.
After six songs, storm clouds, lightning and rain rolled in and sent the hundreds gathered out of the outdoor venue.
