Area Forecast Discussion

556 PM CST Fri Nov 10 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday)
Issued at 218 PM CST Fri Nov 10 2017

Mostly cloudy skies continue today, as low-level moisture
continues to advect northward. This has made for a chilly day with
temperatures only reaching the 30s. The good news is that
increasing cloud cover should keep temperatures from falling much,
if at all. In fact, thanks to warm air advection, some locations
could end up seeing their high temperatures for the day at

Drizzle still appears likely over much of the forecast area late
tonight, although I pushed back the start time by a few hours,
starting in Kansas after midnight and early Sunday morning in
Nebraska. The most likely axis of drizzle appears to be along and
east of a line from Phillipsburg to Fullerton. I`ve also included
a mention of fog for western parts of the forecast area, but
models keep the most dense fog out across western Nebraska.

Drizzle and cloudy conditions will continue across most of the
area through Saturday morning, before gradually shifting east of
the area Saturday afternoon. As such, temperatures on Saturday
have trended colder, and will likely only reach the 40s to around
50 degrees at best.

On Saturday night, an upper level wave and a weak front will move
through the area. This may bring some precipitation to north and
northeastern Nebraska.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday)
Issued at 218 PM CST Fri Nov 10 2017

Despite the passage of the cold front Saturday night, Sunday
should be a few degrees warmer thanks to clear skies. High
temperatures should be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

This warming trend continues on Monday and Tuesday as ridging and
southerly flow increases. Tuesday will be particularly nice with
relatively light southwest winds and highs in the 60s! There is a
slight chance for a few rain showers in the southeastern parts of
the CWA Tuesday, although better chances will be east of the area.

Another weak cold front will pass through the area on Tuesday
night, but it doesn`t look like it will bring much cold air with
it. High temperatures should still reach the 50s Wednesday,
Thursday, and Friday.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Saturday)
Issued at 525 PM CST Fri Nov 10 2017

Ceilings are going to be coming down through the night and
especially around dawn and through Saturday morning. With the low
ceilings we expect some areas of drizzle primarily Saturday
morning. IFR ceilings will prevail through the day on Saturday
with possibly LIFR ceilings at times Saturday morning.
