LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The current weather pattern looks “locked in” for the remainder of the week and into the weekend...

5-Day Outlook
5-Day Outlook(KOLN)

The overall weather “forecast” for the coming days is a rather easy one to put together...but the “specifics” of each day’s weather conditions are much more of a challenge. For our region, expect warm and slightly humid weather each of the next several days. Temperatures will be cooler over the western-half of Nebraska where the better shower-and-thunderstorm chance will occur pretty much each day through the upcoming weekend. Expect highs in the 70s and 80s...with a few lower 90s possible in spots over the coming days. Thunderstorm “chances” will develop each day as abundant low-level moisture continues to stream north from the Gulf of Mexico...and interacts with a series of weak disturbances aloft as they float across the Midwest. The most “likely” timing scenario is for late-afternoon and evening thunderstorms to develop and push east. Widely “scattered” ‘storms will be possible just about anywhere...but better thunderstorm chances will develop in western Nebraska with the heating of the day and the weak waves rolling east out of the Rockies. These ‘storms are likely to form a line...or “complex” as they push east...and while much of this activity is expected to weaken over time...some precipitation could make it into eastern Nebraska during the overnights and early mornings.
