Sweltering temperatures continue today 7/28/2021
We are off to a warmer start this morning as all of southeast Nebraska is sitting in the 70s with high dew points. These high dew points will continue into the afternoon and evening, resulting in a very muggy day. Highs will also be a few degrees warmer, with most of the area peaking in the upper 90s and low triple digits.
Combine this heat with the moisture and it will make it feel more like 105 degrees or warmer this evening. Use caution if you plan on spending time outside and stay hydrated!
The heat carries over into your Thursday, but high temperatures will be a bit cooler. A cold front will push through the area throughout your Thursday and eventually will spark a few thunderstorms late in the day. Rain chances continue into the weekend with a major drop in temperatures back into the 80s.
- TODAY: Highs reach the upper 90s and triple digits with heat index values near 110 degrees. HIGH: 100
