Rusty’s 6 First Alert Forecast - Hot & humid 2 days ahead. Spotty storms possible too.
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - We had a loud storm move through overnight that was able to bring some healthy downpours to the area around midnight. Several 0.50″ to 1″ rain amounts likely fell across Douglas county with that round.
Now we have a few showers or storms possible through about 3pm today with but I don’t expect anything widespread so consider yourself lucky if you get some rain.
Even with the rain chances, I still expect us to heat up today with a high in the upper 90s. Heat index values likely hit the triple digits for a few hours today too.
We’ll have a south breeze up to 25 mph with dew points in the muggy range on the muggy meter by the afternoon.
Saturday is still on track to be the hottest day of this stretch with a high near 100 and feels like temps that could reach as high as 108 in the area. There is a 30% chance of a storm or two after 4pm into the evening hours as well.
Some relief from the heat is still on track for Sunday with highs back to near average.
