Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


Eastern Nebraska is set up for a few hot days this week, though the light at the end of the tunnel is already visible. Wednesday is set up to be the warmest of the next seven, at least... highs near mid 90s for Lincoln with upper 90s closer to the Sandhills. There will be some relief with breezy conditions... out of the south at 10 to 20 mph, gusts up to 30 mph. So the air won't be stale even though it will be warm out. This time of year Lincoln is more commonly around the lower to middle 80s. We'll lose a degree or two each day coming up leading us to near 90 degrees for the weekend. As a cold front approaches shower and storm chances creep in Friday and Saturday before being their highest as the front passes through on Sunday and Monday, with rain chances continuing into mid-week next week. Sunday will be near 90 ahead of that front... on the back end, Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Lets detail your Saturday to finish off this discussion, because, I don't know... maybe for some reason you're especially interested in that day. I can't imagine why though... (GBR!)

Saturday will start off quiet enough, partly cloudy skies with temps in the lower 70s. Nice for tailgating... but a seasonably warm start will lead to a seasonably warm afternoon. Highs will reach upper 80s to lower 90s in muggy conditions. Won't be breezy, per se, but the wind will be felt from time to time out of the south. There is a chance for rain... almost low enough to not mention during the early afternoon before just barely high enough to mention chances enter near the end of the game/evening hours. Maybe the hope will be a light rain shower comes through near the end of the game or after to cool us off a little? Stay tuned to your Gameday Forecast as details will become clearer the closer we get.


3:00 PM: Seasonably warm with a breeze. Highs near 95 degrees. South wind 10 to 20 mph, gusts up to 25.

6:00 PM: Still warm, partly cloudy. 91 to 94 degrees. South winds 10 to 20 mph.

9:00 PM: Partly cloudy. Lower to middle 80s. South wind 5 to 15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy and continued warm with a 20% chance for showers in the morning. Highs again in the upper 80s to lower 90s. South winds of 10 to 20 mph and gusting to 30 mph. Dry conditions for the remainder of the day until late in the evening. Lows in the lower 70s.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy conditions continue. Lows in the lower 70s... south winds continue to be on the breezy side.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Winds out of the south 10 to 20 mph and gusting to 30 mph. Looking for a mainly clear and dry day then becoming partly cloudy towards the afternoon. Lows in the lower 70s.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs around 90s becoming milder in the evening with lows in the low 70s. A 20% chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms returns for late Friday.

SATURDAY: For Husker Game Day we cannot rule out a chance for showers though it is a slim chance. Highs will be in the low 90s to upper 80s and lows in the lower 70s. A 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms.
