Thanks to some cloud cover Lincoln didn't end being as hot as the past couple of days, but generally across the region it was another day with heat index values in the triple digits.
Tonight we are watching a cold front move to the east and there is the potential to see an isolated strong to severe storm, but behind the front we will see clearer skies. Lows tonight will fall into the upper 60s and low 70s. That cold front will also provide us with some relief although really it will just return to seasonable conditions for many. Expect the temperatures on Sunday to be milder and our humidity as well.
Temperatures will become a bit more bearable through the work week. We will see highs near 90 both Sunday and Monday with lower dew points. As as stationary front then sits to the south of the state there will be an increase in precipitation chances. Up to about a 20 to 40 percent chance through the work week. Afternoon highs will be seasonal next work week with rain chances scattered throughout.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms. South winds of 5 to 10 mph. Lows in mid to lower 70s.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. 20% chance for a thunderstorm. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Northeast winds 5 to 15 mph.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for a thunderstorm. Lows in the upper 60s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. 30% chance for showers and thunderstorm. Highs cool, in the upper 80s. With winds out of the northeast 5 to 15 mph. Lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy with a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. An increase in cloud cover through the evening. Lows in the 70s.
