Hot, Humid Summer Approaching

Our ever unpredictable weather is changing again. UNL Climatologist Dr. Ken Dewey says that Nebraska and parts of the Great Plains are moving out of the prolonged drought pattern, with repeated rainfall a possibility beginning Thursday and extending all the way through the Memorial Day Weekend.¬†Dewey also says that the colder than average weather in the region as of late will now be switching to warmer weather, with temperatures in the 80′s to around 90 degrees over the next ten days for most of eastern Nebraska.

Dewey says it looks like we are now trending toward a steamy, hot summer, with warm and humid conditions in the long term outlook. With June approaching, Dewey also cautions against a possible uptick in the amount of tornadoes in Nebraska, as June is the peak month for tornadoes in the state.
