It is another hot and humid day and National Weather Service – Omaha Meteorologist Josh Boustead says temperatures will be in the 90’s and humidity will be high. He says earlier today thunderstorms had been developing along a front from northeast Nebraska trying to develop down into central Nebraska.
Boustead says, “We are not expecting a widespread event. It is going to be pretty isolated. The most likely area is northeast Nebraska. The central and western part of the state is fairly tranquil this afternoon but still hot. Any severe weather this afternoon is concentrated across eastern Nebraska.”
Boustead says tornados are not a threat but those impacted by one of these sporadic storms could see large hail and gusty wind. A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for a portion of the eastern part of the state.
