LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The heat wave continues as Monday brings yet another hot and humid day with high temperatures in the triple digits. The new week will be accompanied by a series of active weather patterns, including a cold front, which seems to bring a brief “cool down,” but... will increase our chance for precipitation and possibility for severe weather.

The chance for precipitation and possible severe weather threats will ride on a few weather patterns, the main one being the cold front. Monday brings a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area. The best chance for precipitation will be in the late afternoon and evening hours. The central and northern portions of the area could see isolated to scattered severe thunderstorms develop. The main severe threats are large hail and damaging winds. On Tuesday, the cold front will be located in the southeastern portion of the area and will increase the chances of precipitation and storms in that area. The best chance for precipitation will be during the afternoon and evening hours. The southeastern most portion of the state is under a marginal risk of severe weather, which means isolated severe storms with damaging winds and large hail are possible.
