000 FXUS63 KOAX 211122 AFDOAX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 622 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016 .SHORT TERM...(today through Tuesday) Issued at 310 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016 Quiet and dry weather continues for the next couple of days with rain chances returning by Tuesday. Clear cool morning today with fall-like temperatures and calm or light winds 6 mph or less. Winds gradually become west through the day and eventually south toward evening with sunny skies. Temps rebound today over yesterday and should reach the upper 70s to lower 80s. The combination of sunny skies, relatively light winds, and comfortable temps and humidity will result in top 10 day across the region. Another beautiful day on Monday although temps climb into the mid 80s to lower 90s, and dewpoints also increase again to near 60, and southerly winds increase to 15 to 30 mph, but dry conditions continue. Thunderstorm chances return for Tuesday as monsoonal moisture streams northward as a weak impulse moves out of the central Rockies. SPC has placed the area in a marginal risk of severe storms which seems reasonable for now. .LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday) Issued at 310 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016 Storm chances increase to the likely category Tuesday night, as a cold front begins to move into the area. That frontal boundary will still be in the area for Wednesday through Wednesday night with the best rain chances along/south of I80, with precip south of the forecast area by daybreak Thursday. Cooler and drier air expected for Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Precip chances increase again by Friday night and Saturday as the next impulse begins to move onto the plains. && .AVIATION...
