More clouds will filter into the sky on Monday, which could hinder the temperatures by a few degrees. In places where there is more sunshine then clouds, highs could reach the triple digits. The most likely spot for this is northeast Nebraska. The rest of us will still be hot with highs in the upper 90s, heat index values could be between 105-110 degrees.

By Monday evening, a few storms could work their way into northeast Nebraska. These should stay north of a York to Tekamah line, so cities like Columbus, Norfolk, and Wayne have the best chance of seeing a few storms after 7pm. These storms could be on the stronger side with damaging wind gusts possible.

On Tuesday, a cold front slides a bit closer to us, bringing our temperatures down a few more degrees into the mid-90s. Isolated storms are possible during the afternoon, although many will stay dry. A few of these storms could also be on the stronger side.

The cold front moves south of Omaha on Wednesday, providing a brief break from the extreme heat with highs in the 80s with lower humidity. A few storms could be possible ahead of the front over southeast Nebraska into northwest Missouri, otherwise most stay dry.

Another chance of storms comes Thursday afternoon through Friday morning, highs return to the 90s. This unsettled weather pattern will last into the weekend ahead of our next cold front.
