OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Comfortable conditions this morning will quickly turn hot and humid by this afternoon. Hazy sunshine will push temperatures to near 90 by the lunch hour, with low 90s expected this afternoon. With the high humidity levels, expect heat index readings to reach 100 at times, perhaps as high as 105 in a few spots. We will see a southeast breeze gusting up to 25mph at times, which may bring some minor relief, but certainly be prepared for intense heat if you are planning to be outdoors today.
