Current Forecast

I’ll start this forecast by saying that the average high for this time of year is in the lower 80s. Since we live in Nebraska, we all know that “average” doesn’t mean much when it comes to a weather forecast! Saturday doesn’t look like it’ll be “average” and may very well be the hottest day of the month.

We’re going to be on the edge of a large area of high pressure and as that slides east, we’ll get a southwesterly flow that will intensify the heat already in place. A cold front will be on its heels, which may spark some storms Saturday night, but overall, the game is looking dry, sunny and hot.

Here is the hour-by-hour forecast:

  • 2:30pm: Mostly sunny, 92 degrees, SW wind at 10 to 20 mph.
  • 4:00pm: Mostly sunny, 96 degrees, SW wind at 10 to 25 mph.
  • 6:00pm: Partly cloudy, 93 degrees, SW wind at 10 to 20 mph.
