000 FXUS63 KOAX 272311 AFDOAX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 611 PM CDT Sat May 27 2017 .SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Tuesday) Issued at 114 PM CDT Sat May 27 2017 Upper rough rotating around upper low over Manitoba will move across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa tonight. A few showers are possible across western parts of the OAX CWA early this evening. The remainder of the forecast in the short term is dry. Another cold front is expected to move across the area Sunday night into Monday morning, but no precipitation is expected with the passage of the front. Temperatures will be slightly below normal with highs in he lower to mid 70s. .LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday) Issued at 114 PM CDT Sat May 27 2017 Upper level ridging moves across the region on Wednesday with gradual warming into next weekend. The warmup will also be associated with a return flow of southerly winds and moisture over the area. There are indications of a weak upper level wave moving through the upper ridge Thursday through Saturday. Therefore, there is a chance of precipitation later in the week. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Sunday evening) Issued at 611 PM CDT Sat May 27 2017 Visible satellite and surface observations indicate a shield of VFR (FL050-070) ceilings present across much of eastern NE as of 23z. The exceptions are in the KOMA and KLNK vicinities where westward surging outflow from early-day storms has eroded the lower cloud cover. Latest short-term model guidance suggests that these clouds should generally diminish through the evening, though high clouds will increase from the west. Otherwise, ongoing showers from east of KONL to north of KODX should tend to pass to the north of KOFK this evening with persistent VFR conditions anticipated at all three TAF locations. && .OAX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
