We are finally out of the moisture plume assailing the Appalachians, but it appears we have found another stormy site for today’s forecast (although, admittedly, the weather for yesterday’s forecast in Santa Barbara was pretty awesome.)
At 1054 AM, CT, Lincoln was reporting a temperature of 80 degrees with sunny skies and a dewpoint in the mid 60s, though nearby locations were reporting dew points in the low 70s. There was a surface wave twirling through the Missouri Valley generating some clouds, but for the rest of the day, the primary concern will be a bit of lee troughing emerging from the Front Range of the Rockies.
An upper level wave swinging through the Canadian Prairies, though not strong, will help to enhance thunderstorms and usher in a slightly cooler, definitely drier air mass. Things could get rather noisy this evening, and there will be some continuation into tomorrow morning, with chances for a few strong showers and thunderstorms. High pressure will build into the area by the time the sun rises on Friday, leading to a calmer, quieter and more comfortable day on Wednesday –
Tomorrow – Chances for storms, with an isolated severe storm possible, High 98, Low 73
Wednesday – Some rain possible shortly after midnight, otherwise pleasant, High 86, Low 70
TWC: Tomorrow – Isolated T-Storms High 97, Low 76
Wednesday – Mostly Sunny High 83, Low 72
AW: Tomorrow – Warm with clouds and sun; a strong p.m. t-storm; thunderstorms can bring hail and damaging winds High 96, Low 74
Wednesday – Partly sunny and not as hot High 87, Low 69
NWS: Tomorrow – A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1pm. Mostly sunny and hot,High 97, Low 75
Wednesday – Mostly sunny (rain thru 1AM) High 86, Low 75
WB: Tomorrow – Mostly sunny. A slight chance of thunderstorms in the morning…then a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. High 95, Low 73
Wednesday – Not as warm. Mostly sunny (early AM storms) High 88, Low 71
Looks like a hot, steamy mess in Nebraska this week. The real thing will be to keep an eye out for potential strong thunderstorms.
