Triple digit heat index values today 6/23/2021
Your Wednesday afternoon and evening will be sunny and hot as humidity is on the higher side for today. While actual air temperatures will peak in the upper 90s today, heat index values will make it feel like the triple digits. Make sure to practice heat safety throughout the day and stay hydrated.
Thunderstorms will bubble up in central Nebraska around 5 PM and they will drift eastward for the rest of the day and into overnight. Some of these storms will be on the strong to severe side with gusty winds and hail as the main threats.
Another hot day is on the way for tomorrow before we cool down into the weekend with several more rain chances.
