000 FXUS63 KOAX 300425 AFDOAX AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OMAHA/VALLEY NE 1125 PM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014 .SHORT TERM...(TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY) ISSUED AT 250 PM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014 A NORTHWEST FLOW PATTERN REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS THE AREA AT 19Z WITH CONSIDERABLE MID TO HIGH CLOUDS ACROSS THE REGION. LITTLE CHANGE TO GENERAL FORECAST TRENDS IN THE SHORT TERM AS UPPER TROUGH CONTINUES TO HOLD OVER THE EASTERN CONUS WITH RIDGE IN THE WEST. NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE DURING THE PERIOD. LOOKS LIKE THE AREA SHOULD ALSO CONTINUE TO SEE GENERALLY DRY WEATHER DURING THIS TIME WITH DEEPER MOISTURE POOLED TO THE WEST AND SOUTH FROM THE CENTRAL ROCKIES TO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS INTO THE LOWER MISSOURI VALLEY. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS COULD BRUSH WESTERN PARTS OF THE FORECAST AREA LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND EARLY THURSDAY WITH DECENT 1000-700MB LAPSE RATES IN THE AREA AND POCKETS OF 850MB MOISTURE BUT POPS WILL BE ON THE LOW SIDE. .LONG TERM...(FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY) ISSUED AT 250 PM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014 WESTERN RIDGE BREAKS DOWN A BIT AND SHIFTS EAST INTO THE PLAINS REGION IN THE EXTENDED PERIOD OVER THE WEEKEND. MAIN IMPACT WILL BE A TREND TOWARD WARMER TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY. BETTER CHANCE FOR PRECIP WILL BE NORTH OF THE AREA AS ANOTHER FRONT MOVES INTO THE NORTHER PLAINS AND ALSO TO THE WEST WHERE MONSOONAL MOISTURE REMAINS IN PLACE. && .AVIATION...

(06Z TAFS FOR KOFK...KLNK AND KOMA.) ISSUED AT 1125 PM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014 STILL EXPECT MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS TO DOMINATE THROUGH THE PERIOD. SOME FOG IS POSSIBLE TOWARD SUNRISE...ESPECIALLY AT KOMA. WINDS WILL BE LIGHT. WEAK SHORTWAVE TROUGH/VORT MAX NEAR THE ND/SD BORDER WAS STILL DROPPING SEWD WITH SOME MID LEVEL CLOUDINESS. FOR NOW...IT DOES NOT SEEM THAT THERE WILL BE ENOUGH MOISTURE TO WORK WITH IF THAT MOVES INTO OUR AREA WEDNESDAY...BUT WILL NEED TO MONITOR.
