A low-pressure system from the Rockies will move into central Nebraska on Wednesday creating a decent amount of instability for thunderstorms during the late afternoon and early evening. Tomorrow’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s with the warmer readings in the far southwest part of the state. Thursday we will cool off with highs expected to be in the upper 70s with showers becoming more numerous during the day with thunderstorm activity mainly isolated. A few areas may encounter heavy amounts of rain leaving a potential for localized flooding. Friday will be a perfect start to the weekend with highs in the low 80s and mostly sunny skies.
