Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
645 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 258 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

The main forecast concern in the short term is low temperatures
tonight. Think it will be kinda tricky tonight. Tracked along with
some of the cooler guidance which gave temperatures between 31 and
37 degrees across south central Nebraska and north central Kansas.
We are only issuing Frost/Freeze Advisories/Warnings for north
central Kansas, so with temps between 33 and 37 and decided to
issue for these areas.

Otherwise, Monday will be a pleasant Fall day with highs in the
70s with southwesterly winds.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 228 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

The remainder of the work week is quiet with weak upper level
flow. At the surface, winds will be from the south to southwest
through much of the work week. Highs are expected in the 70s with
lows slowly warming through the week from the 30s to the 50s by
Friday morning.

A fairly potent upper wave will be approaching the Central Plains
for the weekend, with a cold front expected to move through the
area early Saturday. There are discrepancies in the timing of the
passage of the upper low over the Plains which could change the
frontal timing slightly. There is a chance for precipitation along
this front for Saturday into Saturday night.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Monday)
Issued at 629 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

VFR conditions are expected to persist through the remainder of
the TAF valid period. The wind will quickly die down this evening
and could be calm to variable at times. Eventually by mid Monday
morning the wind should become southerly.
