Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
636 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

.SHORT TERM...(today through Friday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Latest medium range models indicate no significant active weather to
contend with over the next several days...leaving temperature the
main issue. Sfc meteograms are clearly showing a roller coaster
trend thru mid week...starting with a downward trend today thru
tonight in response to prevailing nw winds. Expect highs this aftn
generally in the low/mid 60s...and overnight lows in the low 40s.

On Thursday...sfc high pressure situated east of the CWA will allow
for warm backside return flow into the region...allowing highs to
peak in the low/mid 70s per both MET/MAV guidance. Even warmer then
on Friday with highs pushing into the mid/upper 70s with low 80s
possible over the extreme srn CWA with good MET/MAV agreement. That
will be approaching near record territory for both KOMA and KLNK.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Dry and pleasant conditions continue to be advertised by both the
GFS and ECM with above normal temperatures prevailing throughout
the extended period.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning)
Issued at 627 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Area of IFR cigs in eastern South Dakota and northeast Nebraska
will spread southeast through eastern Nebraska during the morning,
then shift to the east in the early afternoon. Areas of fog will
also occur through mid morning. KOFK will see a few hours of VLIFR
conditions in both cigs and vsbys, with a gradual improvement to
MVFR before 18Z. KOMA will likely see MVFR cigs/vsbys during this
time, but could briefly go to IFR for a period. Lower cigs are
forecast to remain northeast of KLNK, but if they were to affect
that TAF site, would expect 14Z to 18Z a period of potential MVFR
cigs. VFR conditions are expected by 20Z all sites. More fog
potential enters the forecast after 06Z.
