Who would have thought that 90° air would feel so good…no more 100° temperatures on this Friday! In fact, Lincoln was only in the upper 80s for most of the day. This was thanks to some cloud cover and some scattered showers hanging around the area which kept things on the cooler side.
You may have to dodge a couple more isolated showers for the rest of the evening. Other than that, we’re dry across much of the state. We stay partly to mostly cloudy into Saturday morning with a small chance for an isolated storm. Lows will be slightly above normal, around 67 degrees.
Saturday looks to be partly cloudy with an isolated storm chance during the afternoon and early evening. Another warm day, a high near 91.
Rain chances are better late tomorrow night and into Sunday morning. The storm activity late Saturday and early Sunday morning appears to be favored in the southern portions of Nebraska, and there are still questions as to whether these storms will be able to hold it together by the time they get to Lincoln.
Any severe weather risk for the storms late Saturday night and into Sunday morning is mainly in southwest Nebraska, far removed from Lincoln. The Storm Prediction Center has placed areas west of the Tri-Cities under a slight risk for severe weather tomorrow night.
In those regions, the primary concern would be damaging winds. These storms should depart by Sunday morning. Sunday morning looks mostly dry. However, here is a chance for some isolated showers Sunday afternoon as a cold front approaches. This cold front will pass by Sunday evening, setting the stage for a BIG temperature drop on Monday…
