**Severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for Brown, Republic, Nemaha, Marshall, and Washington counties until 10 pm.**
The chance of strong to severe storms sticks around for this evening, but later than yesterday. A few storms may clip our northern areas starting after 8. Overall, it’s not the greatest chance of severe weather, but any strong storms that do develop could produce some damaging wind gusts and large hail. Otherwise, the sky will be partly cloudy as lows drop off only into the mid 70s tonight.
A similar day is expected for tomorrow as you kick off your weekend. Mostly sunny skies will dominate most of the day, with it being another hot and humid one, as well. Air temperatures are expected to top out in the low to mid 90s for tomorrow, but that humid air in place will make it feel all the much hotter. Heat index values could range from 105° to 110° at times tomorrow. Storm chances also make another appearance, but that looks to hold off until the nighttime hours of tomorrow. Strong to severe storms are possible, with the main threats being the chance of damaging wind gusts and some large hail once again.
The weather turns things around just in time for Father’s Day on Sunday. A few lingering showers are possible for early Sunday, leftover from the night’s before storms. But behind those storms will be cooler and much drier air. Highs will only be near the 80 degree mark for Sunday, with all of the humid air being knocked out of the region, as well.
Temperatures will climb right back up beyond Sunday, with storm chances moving back in by midweek next week.
