Watches and Warnings

Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


High pressure will dominate much of the region over the next 24-36 hours. Look for clearing skies and seasonably cool temperatures overnight Thursday night with some patchy areas of fog...followed by a breezy and much warmer day on Friday with highs in the 70s and lower 80s. Your weekend begins dry, breezy and warm...but the next storm system to affect the area will begin to move into the region by Saturday night giving us an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms. Some severe activity looks possible Saturday night and into your Sunday as a large, slow-moving upper-level low pressure area swings across the Plains. It appears that this upper-level system may affect our weather into the middle of next week...with much cooler temperatures and continuing rain chances into at least Wednesday. Please stay tuned to the latest forecast details as the weekend draws near...especially if you have outdoor plans for later Saturday and into Sunday.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Becoming clear-to-partly cloudy and cooler...with patchy areas of late-night fog possible. Lows in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Breezy early in the evening with northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph...with gusts to 35 mph possible...then becoming west-southwesterly at 5 to 10 mph later.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny and much warmer...turning breezy in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Southwest winds of 5 to 15 mph...increasing to 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon...with gusts to 30 mph possible.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy and not as cool. Lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s. Winds becoming southeasterly at 8 to 16 mph.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy and continued warm...with a 20% chance for a late-afternoon thunderstorm. Highs in in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Southeast winds of 10 to 20 mph...with gusts to 30 or 35 mph at times. The chance for thunderstorms will increase SATURDAY NIGHT...and some strong-to-severe 'storms will be possible.
