Another warm and windy day is on tap for Sunday. We will see more clouds, but it will still be quite warm despite the cloud cover. Temperatures warm into the 80s by Noon, with highs topping out around 90 degrees. Winds will gust out of the south and southwest up to 35mph at times. The humidity sticks around as well, likely resulting in heat index readings in the low to middle 90s. A few evening thunderstorms are possible in central and northeastern Nebraska, but that rain is generally near and north of Columbus to West Point to Tekamah, we likely stay dry in the metro.

More warm and windy weather is expected on Monday. Highs climb to around 90 degrees once again. Winds may be even stronger, with gusts of 40-45mph possible for parts of the area. A cold front will enter the region in the evening, with scattered thunderstorms likely developing along that front. Storms may develop as early as 4pm in eastern Nebraska, potentially right over the metro. As storms develop, they could become severe with large hail, high winds, and even an isolated tornado possible. Storms will quickly push east, likely out of the area by 8pm so they will not last all night long. Stay tuned to the forecast through the weekend as we fine tune the details on the severe weather risk.
