Wednesday Forecast: Severe thunderstorms possible
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The pleasant weather we enjoyed on Monday will quickly fade from memory as hot and humid conditions return for Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures will return to the 90s...with some triple-digits possible in spots...and dew points will head back into the 60s-to-lower 70s on Wednesday and Thursday. Heat index values may approach “advisory” levels once again on both days...so get re-acquainted with those hot weather safety tips we shared with you last week.
Severe thunderstorms may develop first in western Nebraska Wednesday afternoon and evening as a disturbance rolls out of the Rockies and tries to push east into central and eastern Nebraska later Wednesday night. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threat, however, a few isolated tornadoes will be possible.
Severe weather will once again be possible on Thursday.
Thunderstorm chances will linger into Friday with the aforementioned front in the area...with readings dropping back into the 80s. Cooler, less humid conditions are then expected for the weekend...with highs in the low-to-mid 80s and small shower-and-thunderstorm chances both Saturday and Sunday.
