Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
1112 AM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 347 AM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

The cold front is finally showing signs of pushing through and
visibility/ceilings have improved considerably. Clouds may be
just a bit slower to clear than models have indicated, judging by
latest satellite loops.

Despite the cold front passage, the addition of some sunshine
should boost temperatures warmer than what we have had in the
recent past with highs near 50 and some clearing means lows in the
lower 30s, not dropping off too low as return flow already ensues.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 347 AM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

A warming trend still looks in order for the beginning of the
work week with broad ridging, with Tuesday still looking like the
warmest day in the lower to mid 60s. Flow becomes quasi-zonal for
mid-week as a dry forecast is expected, with the only chance of
precip on Thursday night/Friday in advance of a larger wave moving
in, when upper level flow becomes more southwest. Still looks mild
for the rest of the week with highs in the 50s and lows largely in
the 30s and maybe even some 40s south, before a cold front moves
in by the weekend, and even then, only a small cool down is
anticipated for now.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Monday)
Issued at 1105 AM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

Expect VFR conditions through at least 09Z Tuesday. At present an
upper level ridge is building into the Plains with surface high
pressure stretching from northeast to southwest Neb. This high
should gradually work east over the next 24 hr allowing surface
winds to go from variable to southerly. Fog development is
possible towards sunrise Tue but enough difference in model
solutions that will leave out of the TAFs for now, and evening
shift can include if needed.
