Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
412 AM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

A relatively chilly early morning was noted across eastern Nebraska
and southwest Iowa as 4 AM temperatures had dropped into the 30s in
many areas. The coldest spot was Wayne Nebraska at 31 degrees where
mainly clear skies were seen. In southwest Iowa and east central
Nebraska, clouds were thickening, helping to hold in a little warmer
air. Temperatures were generally in the lower 40s with Red Oak the
warmest at 46 degrees at 4 o`clock.

An area of high pressure stretching from Minnesota into Iowa, eastern
Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri this morning is forecast to slide off
to the east today as a low pressure system moves out of the Rockies
and into the Plains later tonight. A large area of rain is forecast
to spread into the region today, reaching central sections of
Nebraska and Kansas this afternoon, with the high pressure to the
east limiting rain potential much of the day. However rain will
eventually spread across all of Nebraska and Kansas and into western
Iowa and Missouri overnight as the low pressure system pushes east.

Outside of rain areas, skies are forecast to become cloudy today,
with the clouds and impending rain holding temperatures down near or
below late March normals. Highs will likely hold in the 40s in
western Nebraska and western Kansas where rain invades early in the
day, while 50s to near 60 are expected in Iowa, Missouri and eastern
sections of Nebraska and Kansas. Lows tonight will range from the 30s
in western Nebraska to the lower 50s in central Missouri, with most
of Mid America seeing lows in the 40s.
