Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
406 AM CDT Thu Oct 27 2016

High pressure over eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa early
Thursday brought relatively light winds and mostly clear skies to
the area. This allowed temperatures to cool into the lower 40s as of
4 AM, and also set the stage for areas of fog to develop. While most
reporting sites had visibilities of over a mile, some spots were
seeing patchy dense fog where visibilities had dropped to a half
mile or less.

A low pressure system developing in the Northern Rockies will drift
into the Northern Plains later today and tonight. The result for
Mid America will be a return to south winds and warmer
temperatures. While most of the region will see plenty of sunshine
this afternoon, areas from South Dakota into Iowa could see
somewhat thick high clouds streaming overhead through the
afternoon. Otherwise clear skies are expected overnight.

High temperatures this afternoon will remain chilly in Iowa where
lighter winds and more clouds are expected. But farther west, very
warm afternoon highs are forecast. Expect highs to range from the
50s in eastern Iowa to the 80s in western sections of South Dakota,
Nebraska and Kansas. Overnight lows are forecast to settle back into
the 50s over most of Mid America.
