Warm and humid weekend expected for southeast Nebraska

Now it is starting to feel more like summer.  Lincoln made it up to 85° Friday afternoon.  The warmest it has been in nearly three weeks and the warmest for the date in 16 years.

Warm and humid conditions will continue through the weekend. Saturday will start out with sunshine, before turning mostly cloudy for the afternoon.  With the level of humidity in place, an isolated shower/thunderstorm will be possible late afternoon through the evening, however most places should remain dry around southeast Nebraska.  Temperatures will get back to the lower and middle 80°s.

Sunday will likely bring more clouds and slightly better chances for showers and thunderstorms.  This should keep temperatures from being as warm, with highs in the upper 70°s to lower 80°s.

Much of the same is expected as we go through the beginning of next week.  Mostly cloudy skies.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Highs in the upper 70°s to around 80° and humid.  Dew points are projected to remain in the middle 60°s for the next 5-6 days before a cold front is forecast to pass through the area Tuesday.
