Thursday Forecast: A little warmer with thunderstorm chances late
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Daytime temperatures are expected to increase a bit over the next few days...but so will dew point levels and precipitation chances...
A parade of upper-level impulses will dominate our weather pattern over the next seven days...and while all-day rains are not likely...”periodic” shower-and-thunderstorm chances will be included in the forecasts each day. Widespread severe weather does NOT appear to be a significant threat at this point...but it is mid-May so some severe thunderstorm activity will be possible at times. This pattern looks to get “stuck” in our area...possibly through the end of next week...so keep the umbrella handy and try to remember how important precipitation is in this part of the country.
Partly sunny Thursday afternoon and perhaps a few degrees warmer. Highs in the upper 60s to near 70. South wind 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph possible. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible and with a few isolated severe t’storms possible in parts of central and western Nebraska this evening into the overnight hours. Lows in the upper 40s.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible Friday morning, especially in southeast Nebraska. The showers and t’storms will become more scattered in nature by mid day and Friday afternoon. Friday afternoon high temperatures will be around 70.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue into the weekend and into next week. Highs will be warmer with temperatures in the lower to mid 70s.
