MONDAY, JULY 25, 2016
Seasonal temperatures will continue for the remainder of the week.. better rain chances will return across the state Tuesday into Thursday.
Nonetheless, tonight will remain mostly dry as winds out of the east then turn out of the southeast. Lows overnight will cool to the lower 60s. Tuesday afternoon the sunshine will stick around and Southeastern Nebraska should remain mostly dry. Expect temperatures to peak around average.. in the upper 80s. Winds will move out of the south at 10 to 15 mph.
If you are looking for the rain, the better chance for showers and storms will return late Tuesday across the state. Showers and storms will move out of Western Nebraska and push into Central Nebraska Tuesday night. Eastern Nebraska cannot rule out that possibility for an isolated shower or two early Wednesday morning. The next best chance for showers and storms across Eastern Nebraska will be Wednesday going into Thursday. As a moist flow continues to move out of the south and fast moving winds ride along the jet stream, some storms could be strong to severe. Locally heavy rain will be possible as well.
Temperatures for the rest of the week will be in the 80s to near 90. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible for the end of the week going into the weekend.
