LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Temperatures will warm and become more seasonal through the weekend... highs in the 80s and 90s. The chance for precipitation and threat for possible severe weather still remains in the forecast, but will come in rounds... giving enough time for some fun midday outdoor activities.

Saturday will be another mild day... at least in terms of temperatures! High’s across the state will be in the 80s and 90s. However, the southeast will only see temperatures reach the low to mid 80s, which is below average for this time of year. Low temperatures will drop down to the 60s. In terms of sky conditions... Saturday will be mostly cloudy with the chance for scattered showers and storms... mainly in the morning and late afternoon/evening hours. Friday’s chance for precipitation will linger into the Saturday morning.

Some of these storms may be strong to severe... as isolated severe thunderstorms are possible in the northern portion of the state. The main severe weather threats with these storms are large hail and damaging winds.
