Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska

FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 2014


It is going to be a very BIG weekend with the first Husker home game and the Holiday weekend. With the possibility of severe weather on Sunday, you will need to be weather aware. For the last unofficial weekend of summer, temperatures will be right on point. We should see highs in the middle to upper 80s.

Going into more detail, most of Saturday will be dry. There is a slight chance of an early morning shower and patchy fog. By kickoff, the skies should clear up over the Capital City and the Big Red will have the sun on their shoulders. It could get a little toasty in the stadium, so make to hydrate...with water.

Moving on to Sunday, the weather will become quite active. A cold front along with an upper level disturbance will push across the state. Abundant heat and moisture will be present and will set the stage for storms to fire up in the afternoon and evening. Some of these storms could be strong to severe producing large hail, damaging winds, and even isolated tornadoes.

Isolated showers could linger into the Holiday, Monday. Otherwise temperatures on Monday will be slightly cooler than the weekend with highs in the lower 80s.

As a friendly reminder for the weekend, if you are planning on heading to the campground or planning an outdoor event Sunday, be sure to include a weather radio. Have a safe and fun weekend!
