Rusty’s First Alert forecast: Summer heat continues, First Alert Day for Friday morning
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Warm summer morning air will heat up into the lower 90s yet again this afternoon. We’ll have the same humidity and dew points temperatures as well among the mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Light southeast winds at 5-10 mph won’t move the air around much at all either.
Thursday proves to be the warmest day of this hot stretch. Highs will make it into the mid 90s pretty easily with heat index values staying just below 100 during the afternoon. Then Friday morning is a First Alert Day as storms are set to move in from the northwest during or just after the morning drive.
A line of storms will likely be dropping in from the northwest early in the morning Friday. While the severe potential is low with severe wind gusts being the main threat, the timing of any rain and storms will likely line up near or just after the morning drive. Look for this to impact the morning commute Friday but also bring in some much needed rain.
I still think most of the rain totals will end up below 1 inch from this round which is unfortunate because this is the only significant rain chance in the forecast for the next 10 days.
