Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
401 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

Mainly clear skies were seen across eastern Nebraska and southwest
Iowa overnight. Southerly winds averaging 5 to 10 mph helped to keep
temperatures from falling too far, with readings at 4 AM ranging
from the middle 40s to lower 50s in most spots. However temperatures
had fallen into the 30s where winds went calm, like 38 degrees at
Wayne and 34 in Columbus.

One more mild day is forecast for much of Mid America before big
changes come later in the week. For Wednesday, a low pressure system
moving east across the Northern Plains will nudge a weak cold front
south through Nebraska and Iowa and into Kansas and Missouri by late
in the day. The most notable change will be a shift in wind
direction from south to northwest as the front moves through, with
the main cooling effects being felt in South Dakota and western

Then tonight, a storm system gathering in the Rockies will begin to
affect western parts of the Plains. Light rain could begin this
evening in the Nebraska Panhandle, with a change to snow there by
midnight. After midnight, snow is expected to spread east into south
central South Dakota and north central Nebraska where some light
accumulations are possible by sunrise. Elsewhere across Mid America
an increase in cloud cover and cooler temperatures are forecast

High temperatures this afternoon are expected to range from the 50s
behind the cold front in most of South Dakota and western Nebraska,
to the 70s in Kansas and Missouri, as well as southern parts of
Nebraska and Iowa. Lows tonight should fall back into the 20s in
western Nebraska and South Dakota, but hold in the 40s in Missouri
and eastern Kansas.
