Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
357 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 338 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

Another nice day is expected across the region with near
seasonable temperatures and occasionally gusty northwestelry
winds. While the radar so far this morning is quiet...models are
picking up on a weak disturbance across the high plains which may
bring a few light showers or sprinkles to north central Kansas
later this morning and possibly into the afternoon hours. In
addition...with very deep mixing forecast...on the order of 700
mb...could once again see some high based CU develop later in the
day...with a sprinkle at any given location not completely out of
the question. While confidence of this was low enough to emit from
the forecast...did increase cloud cover through the afternoon

With the anticipated deep mixing...also increased winds across the
region this afternoon...with occasional gusts of 30 to 35 mph not
out of the question.

For tonight...expect dry and seasonable conditions to
continue...although a weak disturbance towards morning could
produce a few light showers towards daybreak...but think that the
better chance for this lies just beyond the short term portion of
the forecast.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 338 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

The long term portion of the forecast discussion will be issued
around 5 AM CDT.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 06Z Monday)
Issued at 1230 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

VFR conditions are anticipated through the period. Expect some
passing high clouds...with a few mid level CU likely forming
during the afternoon hours again tomorrow as good mixing is
realized across the region. In addition...with the good
mixing...expect some gusty afternoon winds.
