EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM FRIDAY...

Hot and humid weather will continue through Friday with some relief Saturday but even cooler temperatures by Sunday.  

The next few days will be the hottest throughout all of Eastern Nebraska.  Highs will top out near 100 degrees but the heat index will range between 105 and 110+

We'll see a mostly sunny sky and a breezy south wind through the period. Also a record warm low may be in jeopardy tonight. 

As a cold front approaches on Saturday we will have a 30% chance for isolated to scattered storms. Some of us may still miss out on rain chances.

Cooler temps in the 80s for Sun-Tue before a return to the lower 90s later next week. 

There are a few more hit and miss storm chances too for next week but by no means a "wet" pattern.
