Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


Showers and thunderstorms will be likely Thursday night as an upper level trough, surface low and cold front move through the area. Any storm that develops has the potential to be severe. Large hail, strong winds and an isolated tornado are possible. Heavy rain could occur at times as well.

Our best chance for rain Friday looks to be in the morning with lingering showers and thunderstorms from Thursday night's activity. The low pressure system and cold front will be moving slowly east through the day Friday. Some isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop with the heating of the day in the afternoon. The chance of rain should come to an end by the mid-evening hours Friday night.

Warmer temperatures and dry conditions are expected this weekend. With a high pressure ridge building into the area, above average temperatures look likely for much of next week.
