Rusty's Evening Forecast - Heat on the way before a First Alert Day Saturday

By  | 

We get yet another great night to enjoy with temperatures slowly cooling from the 80s into the 70s. We'll eventually drop to a low in the mid 60s by Thursday morning.

A hot, humid and breezy day is in store Thursday as temps are expected to soar into the mid 90s bring us our first bout of heat for the season. SSW winds at 10-20 mph gusting to 30 mph will aid in the warming. A few storms are possible north of the metro in the evening hours as well so watch for those around Norfolk and Tekamah areas.

Friday starts with a 30% chance of a few morning showers and storms left over from the night before, again mainly north of the metro. Then partly cloudy skies take over with highs near 90 likely by late afternoon. Another round of storms is possible after 11pm Friday night but the vast majority of those will stay west of our area and be stronger that direction as well.

Saturday is a First Alert Day due to the greater threat of severe weather in the metro and surrounding areas. There could be a few morning showers or non-severe storms to get rid of first before we warm into the lower 80s. After 3pm and into the evening more storms are likely to develop along a front. Some have the risk of being severe with large hail and strong wind the main threat. An isolate tornado can't be ruled out but the threat is low. Stay up to date on the latest with this First Alert Day.
