Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1213 PM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

.SHORT TERM...(today through Friday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Latest medium range models indicate no significant active weather to
contend with over the next several days...leaving temperature the
main issue. Sfc meteograms are clearly showing a roller coaster
trend thru mid week...starting with a downward trend today thru
tonight in response to prevailing nw winds. Expect highs this aftn
generally in the low/mid 60s...and overnight lows in the low 40s.

On Thursday...sfc high pressure situated east of the CWA will allow
for warm backside return flow into the region...allowing highs to
peak in the low/mid 70s per both MET/MAV guidance. Even warmer then
on Friday with highs pushing into the mid/upper 70s with low 80s
possible over the extreme srn CWA with good MET/MAV agreement. That
will be approaching near record territory for both KOMA and KLNK.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Dry and pleasant conditions continue to be advertised by both the
GFS and ECM with above normal temperatures prevailing throughout
the extended period.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday afternoon)
Issued at 1209 PM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016

Stratus deck is causing IFR conditions to linger at all sites into
the afternoon, even with improving visibilities. Ceilings should
erode in the next couple of hours at KOFK and KLNK, but it may
take longer at KOMA, where conditions may remain MVFR until almost
sunset. Clearing is a double-edged sword tonight, as areas that
clear may fog up again late tonight into Thursday morning, with
calm to light and variable winds and lingering low-level moisture.
KOFK is likeliest of all sites, followed by KLNK and then KOMA.
Did include reduced vis at all sites in the early morning hours,
and hinted at possible low ceilings with a scattered mention for
now. All sites should improve by mid- morning, with winds becoming
southerly at around 8-10kt.
