Just about everybody is going to see a high heat index on Sunday, too. Triple digits are expected from Lincoln west. Further south and east won’t be quite as hot, but still very warm.

With heat like this, it’s a good idea to stay as hydrated as possible, find the shade and/or AC often, and take many breaks if you are outside. Check on the elderly and very young often, and don’t forget the pets!

As we head into next week, temperatures will be a little cooler on Monday with a chance for some early morning rain. Tuesday will be a pretty nice day with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s. The heat comes back for the second half of the week, though.
