Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
1246 AM CDT Sun May 21 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 410 PM CDT Sat May 20 2017

Light showers and patchy drizzle associated with a slow moving upper
low have been fairly persistent all day and will continue across the
area this afternoon. The extensive cloud cover and light rain have
kept highs rather cool today in the mid to upper 40s. As the low
tracks off to the northeast any remaining showers should begin to
taper off.

With winds dying down and cloud cover exiting the area overnight,
expecting a cold morning with lows dropping into the 30s. Temps
could reach near freezing in our northwest counties where we have a
Frost Advisory in effect. Low lying rural areas and river valleys
will be the most susceptible to seeing patchy frost. Did expand
the advisory to include more counties bordering the original

Sunday temps should warm up into the upper 60s to low 70s. A weak
disturbance could provide a chance for isolated showers along the
Kansas/Nebraska border into north central Kansas but not expecting
significant precip.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 410 PM CDT Sat May 20 2017

Monday looks to be the best chance for showers and thunderstorms in
the near future as a cold front makes its way across the area. In
addition, SPC has a Marginal Risk in place. With MUCAPE of
500-1500 j/kg, a couple strong storms will be possible, especially
in our southeastern counties. A few light showers are also
possible on Tuesday as the shortwave moves out of the area.

rain and thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday.
