Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska

Warning: you’re going to see phrases like “mostly sunny,” “”around 90” and “small chance for showers and thunderstorms” throughout this forecast as each day is almost a carbon copy of each other.

September kicks off warm, breezy and humid and will remain that way for the rest of the week ahead. Temperatures for the week will be above average for this time of year as we normally are around 80. A small shower and thunderstorm chance becomes a possibility later tonight and will linger around into Wednesday morning. Most areas should remain dry however. Wednesday night get ready for round two. A small precipitation chance will also be included in your forecast into Thursday morning. Again, most areas will remain dry.

Temperatures will remain on the warmer side if not hot. Expect breezy and humid conditions closing out the week giving it more of a summertime feel. We won’t see a relief from the heat for the next couple of days as high pressure builds into the Midwest. Our next cold front looks to have slowed down in the latest forecast models and won’t be here until at least Labor Day. The passing of that front could come late Monday or even on Tuesday. The good news is that the front will bring some cooler weather once it passes through. It also gives us our best rain chance for the week by Sunday and even into Labor Day Monday.

TONIGHT: Variable cloudiness with a 20% chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms. A bit breezy and a bit warmer. Lows in the mid 60s to lower 70s. South winds of 5 to 15 mph. gusting to 20 mph at times.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy and continued warm with a 20% chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms 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.

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.
