Later storm chances Sunday into Monday
Temperatures in the low to mid 80s have ushered in this Memorial weekend. A touch cooler in Lincoln, the high reached 84° this afternoon with everyone but Nebraska City seeing the 80s.
Our above-average temperatures will continue through the rest of the weekend, inching closer and closer to the 90-degree mark.
Plenty of sunshine is expected for most of the day on Sunday. It’ll have a similar feel to Saturday, giving more of an opportunity to celebrate the holiday outside.
We’ve seen storms remain in western Nebraska for the past couple of days. Another wave has been ongoing just to the west of the border into Wyoming Saturday afternoon, but that will move east into the Panhandle Saturday evening.
After that, the wave pushes into central Nebraska on Sunday, with storms possible, especially into Sunday evening. By the time the wave reaches us in southeast Nebraska, though, the chances diminish. Once again, we’re caught needing some rain dances to see some moisture.
As for severe weather, most is expected to remain below severe-level thresholds. There is a Marginal (Level 1 of 5) risk for most of western Nebraska for Sunday.
Several waves will move through next week, giving small chances for rain and storms almost every day. To close out the month, temperatures will be around 90° by Tuesday into the start of June. June marks the start of meteorological summer, and the 10-day outlook has a summer feel to it with warmer temperatures and storms possible.
