The sunshine returns for Saturday afternoon, and with stronger winds out of the south, we increase the heat and the humidity. Highs will be in the upper 80s. An isolated storm could try to push into northeast Nebraska late Saturday night, but everyone likely stays dry.

We keep heating up Sunday with highs in the low 90s with winds around 25-40 mph. While most of the day will be dry, storms will move in at night ahead of a cold front SLOWLY moving through the region. The greatest concern for severe storms will be for cities northwest of Omaha. While the storms likely weaken as they get closer to the metro, they could hold onto their strength long enough to still be severe.

Most of Memorial Day will be dry as the heat and humidity continue. It will also be breezy as we push into the low 90s with a mix of sun and clouds. The cold front will fire off another round of storms Sunday evening and night, but the severe weather potential will likely be centered more around eastern Nebraska and Omaha.

The cold front and storms then push to our east, drying us out and cooling us off into the middle part of our next workweek. Tuesday will be close to average with highs near 80.

We then drop into the 70s for the middle of the week with a mix of sunshine and clouds.
