Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska

THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 2014

A weak cold front/surface trough will stall across Nebraska tonight and linger in the area this weekend. Occasional upper level disturbances are expected to move through the area as well. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible from time to time tonight through the weekend. The best chance will likely be late Friday into early Saturday thanks to a strong disturbance moving the region. Severe storms possible tonight in Eastern Nebraska and then again Friday across much of Nebraska. The main threats are large hail and strong winds. An isolated tornado can't be completely ruled out. Heavy rain will be possible at times too.

Hot and humid conditions should remain for Friday and Saturday. The second half of the weekend looks to be cooler thanks to the stationary front becoming a cold front and pushing through the area.


THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms. A few isolated strong to severe storms possible. Lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Variable winds at 5 to 15 mph.

FRIDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy, hot and humid. 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms early, then a 30% chance late in the afternoon. Some storms could be strong to severe. Highs in the upper 80 to low 90s. East-southeast winds at 8 to 18 mph.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could be strong to severe. Lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Southeast winds at 5 to 15 mph.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. South-southwest winds at 10 to 20 mph.
