Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska

FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014

We began the week with very hot and very humid conditions...and we end the week the same way. With a warm front situated to our east...temperatures soared into the 90s and dew points in the upper 60s to the mid 70s made it feel even worse. A slow-moving cold front will continue to drift east...and eventually provide us with some relief, but not until the second-half of the weekend. Areas near the front may see some isolated thunderstorm development at times...but the better chance for showers and thunderstorms will come late Friday night into Saturday morning as an upper-level disturbance passes over northern and northeastern Nebraska. With the frontal boundary still in the region on Saturday...another warm and humid day is on tap, but it should be a few degrees cooler in most places. A reinforcing push of cooler air will cross central and eastern Nebraska by late afternoon...and this may work in concert with the front to try and scatter some late-day thunderstorms. If 'storms fire...some could reach severe criteria over southeastern Nebraska. By later Saturday night...cooler and less humid conditions should move into the region and provide us with some very pleasant weather for several days.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear to partly cloudy...with a 20% chance for a late-night shower or thunderstorm...especially across northern Nebraska. North-northeasterly winds of 5 to 15 mph. Lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy and not quite as hot...with a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms in the morning...and a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Any thunderstorms that develop in the afternoon may be strong-to-severe. East-northeast winds of 5 to 15 mph. Highs in the upper 80s to the lower-to-mid 90s.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Isolated early-evening showers and thunderstorms...some 'storms may be strong-to-severe...then becoming clear to partly cloudy and more comfortable. North-northwest winds of 5 to 10 mph. Lows in the low to mid 60s.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and pleasant. North-northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph...with gusts to 30 mph possible. Highs in the low to mid 80s.
