Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
629 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016

.SHORT TERM...(tonight through Monday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016

Dry and rather mild weather should prevail through the short term
as broad area of high pressure at the surface and aloft dominates
the pattern in advance of a strong upper trough approaching the
West Coast. Warm days and seasonably cool nights are expected over
the weekend with minimal cloud cover.

.LONG TERM...(Monday night through Friday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016

Initial short wave energy associated with the west coast trough
begins to spread into the region late Monday night and Tuesday
with rain chances increasing during the day on Tuesday and into
Tuesday night as trough amplifies while moving through the region.
The trough moves east of the area on Wednesday with ridging
returning to the region behind the system for Thursday. Strong
system moving across southern Canada on Friday will bring a brief
cool down on Friday but at this time no additional rain expected.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 630 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016

VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF period. Upper level H5
ridging will build over the central plains tonight and Saturday.
Except for cirrus overtopping ridge axis, skies will be mostly
clear. Short wave moving across southern Saskatchewan and Alberta
on Saturday will lead to lee side trough development northern
high plains, and tightening surface pressure gradient. Southerly
winds will increase somewhat during the afternoon hours into the
10-12kt range.
