Our ever unpredictable weather is changing again. UNL Climatologist Dr. Ken Dewey says that Nebraska and parts of the Great Plains are moving out of the drought pattern, with repeated rainfall a possibility beginning tonight and extending all the way through the Memorial Day Weekend.

Dewey says it looks like we are now trending toward a steamy, hot summer, with warm and humid conditions in the long term outlook.

Dewey says that the storms don’t look severe at this time….but he says tornadic activity is possible in the days ahead across much of the state. Dewey notes that June is the peak month for tornadoes in Nebraska.
