Scattered storms possible Friday, Saturday

Taking a step back since our very active morning yesterday, June marks a lot in the weather world. It is the start of meteorological summer, the summer solstice happens during this month and hurricane season officially starts, too. In terms of our weather back here in Lincoln, daytime averages will increase to the upper 80s, temperatures we’ve already been seeing a lot of.

With the solstice towards the end of the month, sunrise will get earlier and earlier until about June 21st, then it’ll get later minute-by-minute. And by June 30th, the sun will be setting after 9 p.m.

The warm temperatures continue through the end of this week and into this weekend. Daytime highs will be in the middle and upper 80s with a muggy feel again from our recent round of moisture.

More scattered storms are possible this afternoon, too, as we get more unstable with temperatures increasing and southerly flow. The western half of the state comes back into play as well, with a Marginal risk for a few isolated storms to turn severe this evening.

Saturday will be one of the last good days for widespread scattered storms in eastern Nebraska, with smaller chances by Sunday. And the 90s will not be gone for too long as temperatures warm back up a few more degrees on Sunday.


The first look into the first full week of June shows a calm start to the week. Temperatures will continue hovering around 90° almost every day.
