LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - High pressure building into the region will lead to warming temperatures and mainly dry conditions...

As we head into the second-half of the workweek and eventually the weekend...daytime highs and overnight lows will be rising...along with humidity levels and southerly winds. Thursday still looks pretty decent with temperatures warming into the middle 80s with dew points still in the “reasonable” range and southwest winds around 5 to 15 mph...but for Friday...Saturday...and Sunday it’s afternoon highs in the upper 80s-to-lower 90s...dew points climbing back into the 60s...and south-southwest winds at 15 to 35 mph. As our temperatures warm at the surface...they will also be warming aloft...that means any cloud development or possible precipitation chances will be quite minimal until the approach of a frontal boundary by later Sunday night and into the early part of next week.

At this looks like the aforementioned frontal boundary will stall to our north and west...but be close enough to draw some Gulf moisture northward and give much of the region a daily shower-and-thunderstorm chance into the middle of next week. With the increase in cloud cover and possible precipitation...temperatures will cool by a few degrees for Monday...Tuesday...and Wednesday, but it will still likely be a bit humid...and a bit breezy at times. Highs for next week look to hold in the mid-to-upper 80s.
