Scattered storms on Wednesday with relief in sight

After a very warm day Tuesday, we saw more sunshine than storms. That story alters a bit into Wednesday, with scattered storm chances returning. A mild morning will start with temperatures in the 60s and mostly sunny conditions. Highs during the day will be pushing the lower and middle 90s for a sixth day in a row.


As a front nears from the “back door,” or east side moving west, it’ll initiate storm development near and along the Missouri River. These storms will be scattered in nature, and there’s a chance Lincoln could be in or near the action by Wednesday afternoon and evening.

With these storms, there’s a Marginal risk that includes Lincoln and much of Lancaster County. The severe weather risk extends through much of northeast Nebraska up through the Dakotas and down into Missouri. Within this narrow band as storms are ongoing, it’s possible that some could intensify and be severe with the capability of quarter-sized hail and 60 mph winds.

This front hangs about for the next couple of days, providing scattered storm chances each day into the weekend. Temperatures will back off somewhat, back into the upper 80s for Thursday and Friday.

This weekend, though, another cold front comes through the “front door” and brings better chances across a bigger area of the state for rain and storms. We’ll be much cooler in the lower 80s through the weekend because of this. Relief from the 90s is in sight.
