Hot through the weekend

It’s August so temperatures in the 90s are not unusual. What is a tad unusual is the lack of high humidity that normally goes along with it. Because of a dry airmass in and around Nebraska, it’ll be hot, but not that humid!

Temperatures are expected to be in the middle and upper 90s Friday and through the weekend. The dewpoint each day will be in the lower and middle 60s, which won’t add much to the heat index. So it’ll be hot, but not a tropical kind of hot. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies will be expected through the weekend with a south to southwest breeze.

As we head into next week, a weak cold front will sweep though giving us a chance for storms late Sunday into early Monday and then on and off through Tuesday. After Tuesday, the chances for rain drops off quite a bit.

Along with the small rain chances, we’ll see temperature drop off somewhat by Monday. Highs through much of next week will be in the middle 80s!
