LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Breezy...hot...and humid conditions will dominate your weekend weather...

It looks like “perspiration” will trump “precipitation” this weekend as high pressure takes over most of the Central Plains. Weather Alerts for hot and humid conditions are already in place for much of the state...and may need to be “upgraded” over the course of the weekend into early next week. Please use common sense with your outdoor activities throughout the weekend...use sunscreen...stay hydrated...and keep a close eye on your loved ones most susceptible to the hot conditions...including the family pets. Another thing to keep in mind is the warm and humid conditions expected during the overnights...there won’t be much relief in the darkness this weekend.

With the instability in the atmosphere due to the heat and humidity levels...an isolated thunderstorm or two will be possible over the weekend...but with warm temperatures aloft acting as a “cap”...and no real focusing mechanism like a front or upper-level disturbance...thunderstorms are expected to be few-and-far between. The best chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms will be Sunday afternoon and evening in western Nebraska. The severe weather “risk” for the weekend is very low at this time.
