403 AM CDT FRI MAY 6 2016

.SHORT TERM...(TODAY AND TONIGHT)
ISSUED AT 402 AM CDT FRI MAY 6 2016

A WARM AND BREEZY DAY IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE REGION AS HIGH
PRESSURE ALOFT TRANSITIONS EASTWARD AND A STRENGTHENING SOUTHERLY
FLOW CONTINUES TO ADVECT A WARMER AND MORE MOIST AIRMASS ACROSS
THE LOCAL AREA. AS A RESULT...EXPECT AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES TO
SOAR WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR A SECOND DAY IN A ROW...GENERALLY
TOPPING OUT 2-4 DEGREES ABOVE YESTERDAYS READINGS.

LATE IN THE DAY...EXPECT THE BROAD TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE ACROSS
THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST TO BEGIN TO SPREAD ITS INFLUENCE ACROSS THE
HIGH PLAINS AS A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS APPROACHES
THE NE/SD BOARDERS. WHILE THERE MAY BE A FEW SHOWERS OR AN
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM IN THE VICINITY OF THIS COLD FRONT DURING
THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS...DO NOT EXPECT WIDESPREAD OR
SEVERE CONVECTION IN THE SHORT TERM PERIODS AS INSTABILITY IS VERY
LIMITED AND STORMS WILL BE ELEVATED IN NATURE DUE TO A STRONG
SURFACE INVERSION OVERNIGHT. EVENSO...WITH THE PRESENCE OF A LOW
LEVEL JET ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT
HOURS...CANNOT RULE OUT SOME THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY REACHING ACROSS
THE LOCAL AREA LATE IN THE NIGHT...AND MAINTAINED SMALL CHANCES
FOR PRECIPITATION ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AFTER ABOUT
MIDNIGHT. OTHERWISE...TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL ALSO REMAIN ON THE
MILD SIDE...GENERALLY BOTTOMING OUT IN THE MID TO UPPER 50S.
