Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska
WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 2015
A strong area of low pressure will slide into the Central Plains late Wednesday night and into the day on Thursday. Shower and thunderstorm chances will increase during this period across the region...with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s expected on Thursday. Rain chances will linger into Friday for some of us...but as the aforementioned disturbance continues to move to the southeast...much of the region should see dry conditions developing as Friday wears on. Mainly dry weather is then expected to continue into your 4th of July holiday...with highs in the low to mid 80s on Saturday. The daytime hours on Sunday are also expected to remain mainly dry...although it will be warmer with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A cold front approaching the region by Sunday night will bring increasing cloudiness as well as the chance for showers and thunderstorms back to the forecast. The front is expected to stall near the Nebraska-Kansas border through early next week...giving us a chance for more rain on Monday and Tuesday.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Variable cloudiness with a 20% chance for showers and Isolated thunderstorms. Lows in the low to mid 60s. East winds of 5 to 10 mph.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms..not as warm. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. East winds of 5 to 15 mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Continued mostly cloudy with a 40% chance for showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Light east winds.
FRIDAY: A 30% chance for morning showers and thunderstorms...then turning partly cloudy with a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. North winds of 5 to 10 mph.
