Warmth and severe storm potential return today 4/21/2022
We are off to a very foggy start this Thursday morning with visibility below half a mile for most of southeast NE. Turn your fog lights on, take it slow and add some extra space between you and the car in front of you. Fog will eventually lift within the next several hours, but it will continue to be an issue for the entire morning. We won’t see sunshine attempting to peek between the clouds until the afternoon and evening. This sunshine and southerly winds will help warm temperatures to the low 70s later today. Scattered thunderstorms fire up after 5 PM today and push northward into overnight tonight. Areas close to the KS border have the best chance of seeing some of these storms turn severe, so we will keep an eye out on them. Storms will weaken as they push northward, potentially lingering into early tomorrow morning. We remain mild overnight thanks to cloud coverage with temperatures only falling into the upper 50s tonight. Highs reach the upper 80s tomorrow before we gradually cool into Sunday. Another round of severe weather is likely Friday night.
