LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Widespread extremely hot and humid conditions are expected on Tuesday. A Heat Advisory will go into effect for central and eastern counties for Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday will be like walking into a steam bath... thanks to extremely hot temperatures and high humidity levels. High temperatures will be in the triple digits for most, only a few areas will see highs in the 90s BUT it will feel even hotter with the humidity. A Heat Advisory will go into effect at 1 PM CDT and go until 8 PM CDT for eastern and central counties. These areas are expected to have heat Index values from 100 to 110 degrees. Tuesday morning through the afternoon will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with breezy conditions. The chance for scattered rain and storms will develop in the late afternoon through the evening hours in the west and central portions. Eventually will move into the eastern areas in the late night to overnight hours. Isolated strong to severe storms are possible in the northeastern counties with damaging winds and large hail as the main storm threats. Overnight low temperatures will only dip into the upper 60s and upper 70s.
