Another warm, but not too humid day is in store as we have a chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into tonight.  There is a Slight Risk of severe weather out, with the main threat coming later this afternoon into the evening hours.  The threats include large hail, damaging winds, and perhaps an isolated tornado.

The rest of the week includes a warmup into the upper 80s and lower 90s (hotter if you live to the south), humidity levels getting quick uncomfortable, and continued thunderstorm chances, mainly at night.  As we get into next week, we'll see a pretty decent shot of cooler, more comfortable air by Tuesday that may stick around for most of next week.

Fairly comfortable and warm today with a warming trend in store through Friday.  Then we'll see temps drop a little bit through the weekend into early next week.  Rain chances are scattered here and there with the best chances coming at night.

Another very warm, if not hot, and humid day is on the way.  With plenty of instability, a lifting mechanism in the form of a warm front and outflow boundary, and some decent shear, severe weather will be possible today, especially after 4pm for most of us.  Very large hail, isolated tornadoes, and damaging winds are all a threat.  This threat favors areas along and south of I-80.  Meteorologist Nathan Gogo will be in later today and cut in to programming if need be.

The next couple of days will see a little relief from the heat and humidity.  A few more mainly overnight chances for storms exist Wednesday night and Thursday night.  More heat returns for the end of the week and may linger into Saturday.  Slightly cooler air may be in store for Sunday with a slight chance of storms over the weekend.  Sunday should have a better chance than Saturday.

It is an absolutely gorgeous day today. It feels a little more like spring or fall than it does summer.  Lows were only a few degrees above the record for today.  Enjoy it, because hot and humid conditions will be returning.  Another cool one is expected tonight.  Tomorrow will be a little warmer.  Isolated showers or storms are possible late Thursday night into Independence Day morning.  Most of the 4th will be a dry day with warmer and more humid conditions.  I have a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm after 7pm.  The better chances will be after most of the fireworks have gone off, but I at least have to mention the chance for all of you that have plans Friday evening.  The weekend turns hotter and mainly dry.  The very warm conditions will continue into early next week, with continued chances for showers and thunderstorms, mainly at night.

It is a wonderful start to the month of July with temps below average and humidity levels are quite low.  The only issue today is breezy northwest winds and a few sprinkles or spotty showers this afternoon/early evening. Tonight will be a bit chilly for this time of the year with 40s and 50s for lows.  Tomorrow will be about as perfect as you can get in July.  After another cool night Wednesday night, temps will start to climb and so will dew points.  By the end of the week on Independence Day, We'll see near normal temps.  There are a couple of small chances for showers and storms late Thursday night and Friday night.  The chance of rain is small on Friday, but not completely out of the question.  Heading into the weekend and early next week, we see a return to the 90s with the next chance of storms coming Monday night.

With ongoing severe weather in North Central and Northeast Nebraska, I talk about a weather pattern change to come for part of this week, then summer returns in a big way after the 4th of July.  It's all covered right here.

There will be a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms today, with a better chance coming tonight.  This is part of an active weather pattern that will keep at least small chances around much of the next 7 days.  We'll see temps climb the next few days before dropping off much of next week.  I've got it all right here in this morning's weather briefing.

Some more comfortable, but still warm air is on the way for today.  Temps will trend upward toward the end of the week, as several shower and thunderstorm chances remain in the forecast.  Get all the details right here.

A chance for severe weather returns to the area later today, with all modes of severe weather possible.  Otherwise, heat and humidity are back, but there is some relief on the way.  Check out the briefing for all the info you need before stepping out the door.

July is known around here for being hot and humid, so we don't get a lot of near perfect days like you do in the spring or fall.  But today is one of those days you just have to go take advantage of.  The heat and humidity of summer will be returning soon.  I talk about that and any possible rain chances on the way for the 4th of July.  Check out my last weather briefing of the week.

Our July starts off with some wonderful weather, if not even a bit chilly at night.  But the heat and humidity will return before too long.  Check out the briefing to find out what's in store to come for the week ahead and for Independence Day.

There is a severe weather threat starting after 4pm in the west and continuing farther east during the evening and overnight hours.  Initially, supercell thunderstorms will be possible for areas west of the Tri-Cites to the Colorado border.  Large hail, damaging winds, and possible tornadoes will all be possible.  These storms will then push east and northeast into the evening and overnight.  The tornado threat will start to go down as the threat moves to more of a large hail and damaging wind event.  Localized heavy rainfall is also possible.  Those that have seen recent flooding could see more problems if they get some more heavy rainfall.

Showers and thunderstorms will again be possible on your Saturday.  Some severe weather is possible, although on a more isolated basis.  The main threat will be large hail and damaging winds, mainly south and east of the Tri-Cities.

Sunday could hold another risk of severe weather, mainly after 4pm.  All of Central and Eastern Nebraska should be on the lookout, but especially Northeast and East Central Nebraska.  Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes will all be possible.  It will also be a bit toasty on Sunday.  Then a warm and mostly dry week is expected next week.  I did put in a slight chance of thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday.

My wife and I went here for lunch and it was terrible. The atmosphere is boring. The food was terrible. The staff seemed like they didn't want to be there. I would not recommend this place to anybody. We were not looking for a big meal, so we stayed away from the buffet. We ordered the chicken quesadilla and onion rings. The onion rings were huge, but very bland. They tasted like bread and water. We had to ask for ranch just to add some flavor. The quesadilla was a little better, but you could get one much better and cheap at Dairy Queen, which isn't saying much. I'm not normally picky about my food, so getting a 1 star rating from me means something.
