Storms possible Friday

Most of the next 10 days will be dry, but we do have a chance for some showers and storms Friday evening. Storms that do form during this time have a chance to become severe. Some small hail and damaging wind will be the main concerns. After Friday, we dry up and the holiday weekend is looking dry and warm.

Tonight is going to be quiet with most clear skies, temperatures dropping into the middle 60s, and a light southwest breeze. By noon on Friday, we’ll already be close to 90 degrees and will top out in the middle 90s by mid-afternoon.

Storms then become possible late Friday afternoon and into the evening hours. Again, any of these that form do have a small chance at becoming severe. Recent weather models have storms in central Nebraska a couple hours before sunset, then in eastern Nebraska at or just after sunset. Rainfall will be dependent on where the storms form, but here’s what a recent model is saying:

As for Labor Day weekend, it’s going to be warm, but quiet. Highs are expected to be in the middle and upper 80s to around 90 degrees on Labor Day.
