Monday was awfully warm but it will be much more tolerable the rest of the week.
That's the message from Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln who, on the WHOW Morning Show Monday, noted some low pressure in the midwest is shielding us from the extreme heat out west.
As we roll through July, things are showing to be dry throughout the remainder of the month. Shimon says the one thing that could change the outlook is a tropical storm, although at this point they are not showing good chances of a July tropical storm.
As far as temperatures, the second half of the month is looking at above-normal temperatures though not as hot as it has been out west. Shimon says the cooler temperatures staying bottled up in Canada is going to keep things from getting extremely hot in the midwest.
