Storms possible for some – but not all – Saturday night
What a lovely Saturday across Southeast Nebraska. Saturday featured abundant sunshine, lower humidity, and highs in the upper 80s. There was more humidity in the western half of the state – and that is where more instability resides. Couple the instability with an upper-level disturbance and we have a recipe for storm development farther west.
I anticipate that most storm activity will remain farther west for most of Saturday evening – even west of the Tri-Cities. As these storms persist overnight Saturday, a few of these storms may brush the Tri-Cities.
While there is a *small* chance for rain overnight Saturday for Lincoln, most storm activity will be farther west. Skies should remain mostly clear Saturday night, with overnight lows down to 61° – again, most storm activity will reside west of Lincoln.
We won’t rule out the chance for an isolated shower lasting into the early afternoon on Sunday – again, these will be mainly west of Lincoln. Highs on Sunday will be near 87°.
Another round of showers and storms is possible later Sunday night and into Monday morning. We’ll keep isolated storm chances on Monday and Tuesday, but our next “best” chance for rain arrives late Thursday and into Friday as an upper-level disturbance approaches.
