Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


We had another hot and breezy day Thursday afternoon across the Cornhusker State. Temperatures reached the low to mid 90s in many locations. Winds were from the south-southeast at 10 to 25 mph with higher gusts.

A weak disturbance should move through the area Thursday night which will lead to a small chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Mild, above average temperatures are expected with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

We could see a few isolated showers and thunderstorms Friday morning. Otherwise, it will be more of the same with hot, muggy and breezy conditions. Highs in the low to mid 90s and south-southeast winds at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.

Friday night into Saturday morning should be a repeat of Thursday night into Friday morning. At this time, it looks to be dry for the first Nebraska home football game of the season. It will still be hot, humid and breezy though, so make sure you take the necessary precautions (drink plenty of water and wear light-colored & light-weight clothing to name a few) if you are going to the game and have to be out in the heat.

The chance of showers and thunderstorms will be on the increase for the second half the holiday weekend as a cold front moves into and eventually through region. Some isolated strong or severe storms can't be ruled out. Cooler temperatures should return Monday (Labor Day) and hang around through much of next week.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy and mild. 20% chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms...mainly after midnight. Lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. South-southeast winds at 8 to 18 mph in the evening becoming 5 to 10 mph overnight.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. South winds at 8 to 18 mph.
