David’s Evening Forecast - Staying warm for the weekend with a few storm chances
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - After a record-breaking high of 105° Thursday, highs “cooled” off for the end of the workweek. Friday started with temperatures in the 70s paired with scattered showers and thunderstorms along and north of the I-80 corridor. Periods of sun and clouds followed, with a few more isolated showers around throughout the day – especially south of the Metro. Highs warmed into the upper-80s and lower-90s for most during the afternoon hours.
Late this evening and into the early overnight hours (10 PM to 2 AM likely), we’ll have to keep an eye on the radar particularly for areas southeast of the Omaha Metro. Here, a few stronger storms are possible, with hail and gusty winds being the primary threat. These storms should race quickly to the southeast. Lows will drop back into the 60s overnight.
Partly cloudy skies are on tap Saturday, with highs warming into the upper-80s. If you’re heading to the CWS game at 1 PM, you should stay mostly dry. An isolated shower or storm is possible for the evening game, but the best chance for storms holds off until the overnight hours.
Sunday’s best chance for rain will be early and late in the day. Otherwise, expect another partly cloudy day with hotter highs in the low to mid-90s. Happy Father’s Day!
Behind Sunday night’s storm chance, things will really cool down heading into Monday. Expect highs Monday afternoon just in the mid to upper-70s! ENJOY! We’ll start to warm up pretty quickly, with more 80s and 90s returning.
