Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
404 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 403 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

The biggest issue with the short term will be wind today. Although
pressure gradient should relax somewhat this afternoon as a low
tracking across the southern Plains moves east, a jet max will
approach area and as mixing ensues by late morning into the
afternoon, we could get some decent northwest gusts of 25 to 30 mph.
With upper level ridging, there will be a significant amount of
subsidence behind the departing trough, so the chance of precip will
be zilch today and tonight. Another mild day is in store, but it
will feel a bit cooler due to the increased wind speed compared to
yesterday. No huge changes, as highs should reach the upper 40s to
around 50 and lows tonight will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 403 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

The long term discussion will be out shortly.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 06Z Sunday night)
Issued at 1159 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

Biggest issues include a patch of fog heading south of KGRI. Just
recently the vis was in the IFR range, but has quickly improved.
Expect now that wind has gotten a bit strong from the northwest
that this will not be an issue. Expect wind speed to increase
Saturday afternoon with increased mixing and pressure gradient.
