.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Saturday Afternoon)
Issued at 324 PM CST Fri Feb 24 2017

Seeing some areas of lower cloud cover across parts of the CWA this
afternoon, but expect them to lift or dissipate tonight as high
pressure settles in. A weak low pressure system will move over the
Northern Plains on Saturday, and in association with an approaching
mid level trough, may produce a few light snow showers, mainly over
the northwestern CWA closest to the trough.

Low temperatures tonight will be mainly in the teens, then a shot of
weak WAA will allow temperatures to rebound back into the mid to
upper 30s Saturday afternoon.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday Evening through Friday)
Issued at 324 PM CST Fri Feb 24 2017

as five storm systems passing through the region per the GFS. Most
of these clipper systems pass north and east of this CWA with little
significant pcpn expected. Each clipper system will bring good WAA
followed by breezy northwesterly winds and good CAA. PCPN will
likely contain a mixture of rain and snow.

With little to no snow cover over the CWA, temperatures should
remain above normal for this time of year. Low temperatures should
benefit the most as breezy winds should keep temperatures from
