OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The heat builds this weekend along with more humidity. We’ll aim for a high of 100 by Saturday! Factoring in the humidity it will feel closer to 110-113 at the peak of the afternoon heat. That’s why we’ve made it a 6 First Alert Weather Day.

Our weekend cold front is slowing down... that means that Sunday will be another hot an humid day in the Metro before the front arrives in the evening. Highs will climb to the mid 90s with feels like temps near 100. Stay hydrated and look out for signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke this weekend.
