More much-needed rain is in the forecast! Many across Southeast Nebraska experienced lots of rain with Thursday evening’s storms. The winners for rainfall were in the Southeast corner of the state where radar estimated several inches of rain, prompting many Flash Flood Warnings last night.
Temperatures will be on the cooler side on Friday, a forecast high near 83. More showers and storms are possible this evening. These storms will likely be scattered in nature and arrive around the evening commute for the Tri-Cities and in the 7PM-10PM timeframe for Lincoln. Another wave of showers is also possible overnight and into Saturday morning. While it won’t necessarily be raining at every point this evening, rain should be nearby!
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7AM Saturday for much of Southeast Nebraska. This watch does include Lancaster County. I’m more apt to believe that the greater Flash Flooding potential is in the Southeast corner of the state closer to Gage and Pawnee Counties, but we’ll keep an eye on things for Lincoln just in case.
Keep the umbrellas handy, because scattered showers will also stick around for your weekend!
