High pressure still remains our dominant feature Wednesday, but is slowly transferring to the east through the next few days. We’ll see an area of upper-level low pressure develop around the northern Central Plains on Thursday, which may aid in bringing in a few showers to southern Nebraska, but will hold off wet weather for our area.

It will not be until the end of Friday that high-pressure is far enough to the east that a new front will transition into the Central Plains and bring small opportunities for isolated to scattered showers. Late night Friday into Saturday, a 20 percent chance for wet weather is expected. Temperatures during this time will remain within the upper 80s and lower 90s, but due to the extra moisture to the atmosphere, feels-like temperatures could reach into the mid and upper 90s.

We will have another opportunity for isolated showers and weak storms Monday at 20 percent, but all signs point to a better wet weather threat by the end of next week. The StormTrack5 Weather Team is monitoring signs of an intensifying frontal boundary that may bring in a better opportunity for widespread heavy rain and storms. At this time, we remain conservative but alert to the opportunity for active weather, and we will continue to monitor the end of next week.
