Tim's Thoughts:

Record breaking heat for many areas today as places like Grand Island, Lincoln, Norfolk and Omaha all set new records as we topped out in the mid 90s! Further to the NW you saw a much more comfortable day with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. The reason for this, a stationary front that is in place across central Nebraska and for areas east of this boundary hot windy conditions were observed and will be observed once again tomorrow. This front will slowly lift back to the NW which means as the day progresses on Saturday the warmth will begin to spread further north. Prior to this areas of fog may be seen across NW parts of the state but by the late afternoon hours skies will clear allowing temperatures to climb into the mid and upper 80s while central and eastern Nebraska will once again be into the lower 90s. South winds will continue to plague the area gusting over 25-30 mph on Saturday but could gust over 40 mph for many of us on Sunday. Western parts of the state will have the best chance of significant winds on Sunday which could lead to blowing dust and difficult travel conditions. As we move into next week we are tracking a significant cold front that will begin to move into the region on Monday and will continue to push through on Tuesday. This front will usher in much cooler temperatures and our best chance of rain. Tuesday could end up being a damp and cool day for much of the area and then as that front moves out, cooler very fall like air will be pushed into the region as temperatures for the rest of the week will only be in the 60s for many of us!
