Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


The summer sun and breezy winds continue to serve up warm temps and plague us with pollen issues. Lincoln reached 90s this afternoon (Friday) ... and we're expecting to hit them again for at least an extra day or two. The warm temps and breezy conditions are spreading around weed pollen... in fact the level of pollen is in the extreme category according to Nebraska Wesleyan University with a description that reads, "Almost all individuals with any sensitivity at all to these pollens and molds will experience symptoms." These issues will continue through the weekend until a cold front pulls through the state. Speaking of that front, ahead of it, rain chances will exist, though only at 20% on Saturday. Chances pick up Sunday as the front actively moves through the area... with widespread showers and storms possible. Temperatures cool off behind that front, Labor Day Monday down to slightly more comfortable middle to upper 80s... then lower 80s by Tuesday and middle to upper 70s for the rest of the week and rain chances slowly vanish.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy, breezy and hot again. Highs in the low to mid 90s. South winds at 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.

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.

SATURDAY: Partly cloudy, still hot & breezy. 20% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the low to mid 90s. South winds at 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.
