Wednesday Forecast: Above average temperatures continue
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The weather is a broken record as we won’t see much change to the forecast over the coming days with hot and humid conditions across the state with mainly dry weather, though there is a chance for some rain across the area Thursday night and into Friday which will likely be out best chance for any meaningful moisture over the next week to 10 days.
Mostly sunny skies expected on Wednesday and it will be another hot afternoon. High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 90s and it will be muggy as well. Southeast wind 5 to 15 mph.
With mainly clear skies for tonight, temperatures will drop into the mid 60s to lower 70s.
Thursday will be a hot and muggy day with afternoon temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 90s. The humidity could make fee like 100 degrees in the Lincoln area Thursday afternoon. Mostly sunny skies expected through out the day.
A cold front will begin to movie through the state Thursday night and into Friday and that’s when we should see our best chance for rain over the course of the next week. We could see some severe weather across parts of the state Thursday evening and into Thursday night with storms moving across the state and potentially lingering into Friday morning.
Lincoln and eastern Nebraska’s chance for rain will likely be highest on Friday as the front slowly pushes across the area, it will also likely lead to one of our “coolest” days of the next week with high temperatures ranging from the upper 70s to upper 80s across the state on Friday, though it will remain very humid as moisture pools ahead of the front on Friday afternoon.
Temperatures into the weekend and next week will stay above average with a nice long stretch of summery weather expected into the middle parts of June as temperatures will hover in the upper 80s to lower 90s for the foreseeable future.
Some good news though is that while dew points will remain a bit uncomfortable over the next few days, the cold front that pushes through the area on Friday should usher in a drier airmass with more comfortable dew points for this weekend and into early next week.
