630 PM CDT Sun May 21 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday night)
Issued at 344 PM CDT Sun May 21 2017

Light showers have developed across portions of western Nebraska
that are slowly drifting toward the area. Although confidence is low
at this time that they make it into our western counties, high res
guidance does suggest that showers could persist and additional weak
thunderstorms in develop and make their way into our area this
evening. Thus have expanded some low pops a bit further north and

Any showers that do make their way into the area should drift off to
the east southeast overnight and by morning things should clear up
for a few hours before the next wave approaches and a cold front
pushes across the CWA. Showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday
afternoon along the front, a couple of which could be strong to
severe, especially south and east of a line extending from
Phillipsburg to York.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 344 PM CDT Sun May 21 2017

After the rain departs Monday overnight, isolated light showers are
possible off and on Tuesday. Tuesday could be quite breezy in the
afternoon, but held off on increasing winds for now.

Wednesday and most of Thursday should be dry before another round of
shortwaves move through the area Thursday night through Saturday
night bringing us multiple opportunities for rain and thunderstorms,
but due to model variability the timing and severe potential is
still uncertain at this time.
