221 FXUS63 KOAX 290444 AFDOAX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 1144 PM CDT THU JUL 28 2016 .SHORT TERM...(tonight through Sunday) Issued at 255 PM CDT Thu Jul 28 2016 Upper wave moving off the front range will continue to generate an MCS across the central part of the start, and the far eastern fringe of that may clip of far western counties tonight as this continues to drop into KS. Otherwise, the area remains in northwest flow through the weekend with northeasterly flow becoming southeast through time. Believe conditions will generally be dry and cooler than normal earlier in the period with any scant precip chances affecting mainly eastern NE. With flow returning more southerly by Saturday night into Sunday, there could be minimal moisture return that could trigger isolated showers or storms but again coverage would probably remain quite low. .LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Thursday) Issued at 255 PM CDT Thu Jul 28 2016 An upper ridge will continue to build into the area through the extended period, which allows a return to hot and humid conditions with highs above normal in the lower to mid 90s and afternoon heat indicies near 100 Monday through Wednesday. A frontal boundary does try to move into the area Monday night, then lifts back north of the region. Another front tries to move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday, and will have small precip chances with both. && .AVIATION...
