Friday Forecast: Heat AND humidity on the rise heading into the weekend
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Most of us will see a better chance for “perspiration” than “precipitation” in the days ahead...
High pressure will bring a stretch of hot-and-dry weather to the local forecast area as we roll into the first weekend of “meteorological” summer. Daytime highs mainly in the 90s...and overnight lows mainly in the 60s are expected for Friday...Saturday...and Sunday...with little-to-no chance of rain. Humidity levels will also start to climb as south winds increase to 10-to-20 mph...with gusts to 30 or 35 mph at times over the weekend. Expect dew points to jump back into the 60s for most of the weekend...making it feel a little more “uncomfortable” than the past few days have felt.
Our next rain “chance”...and it’s a small one...comes late Sunday night as a weak front approaches the region. As of now...this boundary is expected to remain to our north-and-west keeping our area warm and humid for the foreseeable future. Rain chances will increase a bit as we head into next week...but precipitation is far from certain at this point. Temperatures may cool a few degrees with some periodic cloud cover...but highs in the mid 80s-to-low 90s look likely for much of next week even with the chance for showers and thunderstorms.
