A tropical air mass hovering over the area is giving these first few days of summer, a true seasonal feel. (Summer began at 12:04 a.m. today.)
Dan Pydynowski, a meteorologist for AccuWeather Inc., said hot, humid weather with a mix of clouds and sunshine will rule the day. Highs are expected in the low 90s and tonight is likely to be cloudy and muggy with lows dipping into the low 70s. There's a chance for thunderstorms, but the bulk of the storms are likely to stay north of Omaha.
The heat and humidity continue into the weekend with highs in the low to middle 90s, but it will feel warmer than that due to the mix of heat and humidity, he said.
Saturday is expected to be dry and Sunday mostly dry with a spotty chance for storms.
The heat and humidity is forecast to continue unabated into Monday, Tuesday and beyond, Pydynowski said.
As will be the case over the next few days, the peak heating hours in the afternoon will feel closer to 100 degrees due to the humidity, he said. Omaha is likely to stay dry for a while.
