Warming into the 90s Wednesday, Tracking Weekend Storm Chances

The heat index could be as high as 95 later this week

Wednesday will be the warmest day of the year, so far, as hot air begins to blow in from the south. Temperatures will be near 90 as early as noon and highs will be in the mid 90s with a lot of sunshine. This will likely be the first time Omaha hits 90 this year. An isolated thunderstorm is possible north of I-80 during the day, but outside of this, we stay dry.

A cold front will begin moving into the region early Thursday morning, cooling us off a little for Thursday afternoon. It will still be a warm day, in the low 90s, with partly cloudy skies. Late in the day, some hit-and-miss storms will be possible, mostly south of I-80 where the cold front begins to stall out.

By Friday, the cold front continues to slowly sink father south into Kansas, allowing for the slightly cooler air to move into the region for one more day. Highs on Friday will reach the upper 80s. Where there is a chance for spotty storms during the day, Friday is trending to stay mostly dry now until after sunset when our first wave of storms moves into the region for the weekend.

We'll still be dodging some hit-and-miss thunderstorms this weekend, with Saturday having the greatest chance for storms, and there may be several rounds to deal with: early Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and early Sunday morning. The weekend will be a little warmer and more humid, with Saturday near 90 and Sunday in the low to mid 90s.
