Weather Alert Day

Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


Gusty south winds ahead of a strong cold front pushed Wednesday afternoon temperatures back into the 80s for most of 10-11 Country. As the cold front pushes east Wednesday evening...thunderstorms are still expected to develop over parts of Central and Eastern Nebraska. Some of these 'storms may be strong-to-severe...with the main threats being the possibility of hail, damaging winds and heavy rain. Some rain may linger into the early morning hours of Thursday...followed by variable cloudiness...a bit of a northerly breeze...and cooler temperatures. Highs Thursday will range from the upper 50s to the mid 60s...quite a change from the 80s of Wednesday. An upper-level level disturbance will then move across the region Thursday evening...increasing cloud cover and bringing much of southern Nebraska and northern Kansas an additional precipitation chance. Chillier temperatures will accompany this wave of low pressure...and some snow may mix with the rain overnight Thursday into Friday morning in some spots. Mostly sunny conditions are expected during the afternoon on Friday...but a brisk north wind of 15 to 25 mph will make afternoon temperatures in the 50s seem even colder. A weekend warm-up is still anticipated...with highs on Saturday and Sunday returning to the 60s and lower 70s...a small chance for showers and thunderstorms has been added to your Sunday night forecast...and that precipitation chance will linger into early next week.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy, windy and warm early in the evening...then increasing cloudiness with a 70% chance for showers and thunderstorms developing...some of the 'storms may be strong-to-severe with hail, damaging winds and heavy rain possible at times. Lows in the mid 30s to the mid-to-upper 40s. South winds of 15 to 35 mph...becoming northwesterly at 15 to 30 mph later.

THURSDAY: Some leftover showers possible in the morning over southeastern Nebraska...otherwise partly to mostly cloudy...a bit breezy...and cooler. Highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s. North winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph possible.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy, breezy and colder...with a 40% chance for rain showers...perhaps mixed with snow at times overnight. Lows from the upper 20s to the upper 30s. North winds of 8 to 18 mph...with gusts to 25 mph possible.

FRIDAY: A few early morning rain or snow showers...then becoming partly to mostly sunny...breezy...and cooler. Highs in the mid 50s. Northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph...with gusts to 30 mph.
