A few showers or thunderstorms are possible near the southeast corner of the forecast area tonight as the front washes out and stronger south flow again returns to the region. General features of the upper pattern show little change from earlier runs except being a bit slower with the transition of the western trough eastward. This results in unseasonably warm temperatures hanging on over the area a bit longer. Main band of showers and storms are expected to stay west of the area through Friday with surface cold front setting up over western Nebraska. .LONG TERM...(Friday night through Tuesday) Issued at 245 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017 Western trough begins a slow track east during the period with the cold front finally reaching eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa Monday and Monday night. A prolonged period of rain is indicated along and behind the front as this system works its way slowly east. Very warm temperatures will continue across most of the area through Sunday ahead of the front. && .AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning) Issued at 646 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017 VFR conditions are forecast through Thursday morning.
