I think we have a fairly decent weekend ahead for southeast Nebraska.
We will be carrying a chance for isolated shower and thunderstorm Saturday. The best chance – and even then it is relatively low – will be along and west of Highway 281. Otherwise, skies will be partly cloudy throughout the day. Temperatures should be very comfortable – and below normal for this time of the year. Highs will be in the middle 80°s.
There is a chance for a few more showers and thunderstorms, again west of Lincoln, early Sunday morning. We’re talking during the pre-dawn hours. A few may linger around Sunday morning for areas like Aurora, Hastings, or Hebron.
Going further in to the day should bring partly cloudy skies. While I think most of southeast Nebraska will remain dry during the afternoon, there are enough computer models hinting at the possibility of scattered showers and thunderstorms for me to include a chance in the forecast. Don’t cancel any outdoor plans. Most areas should stay dry Sunday. Be sure to check back through the weekend for an updated forecast from Meteorologist Malcolm Byron.
Otherwise, temperatures should top out in the lower to middle 80°s Sunday.
