A warm front will soon slip through Eastern Nebraska, bringing another round of intense heat. The area will begin to feel the affects tonight, as lows remain in the warm and muggy lower 70s. While widespread rain is not likely, a few isolated t-storms will be possible tonight as the front kicks by.

Saturday remains hot with highs in the middle 90s, but cooler weather returns by Sunday as highs drop to the upper 80s. Below normal highs stick through much of next week, with Monday starting in the pleasant lower 80s.
