Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
650 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Friday)
Issued at 245 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

A cold front was moving through the area at 07Z and will continue
to push southeast gradually slowing and stalling after 12Z as it
reaches eastern Iowa and northeast Kansas. 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. A band of
MVFR cigs near KOMA at start of TAF period will quickly move east.
Then northerly winds under 12kt through the day will gradually
turn east or southeast overnight. Scattered to broken mid and high
clouds are possible later tonight when thunderstorms develop in
southeast Nebraska, well south of KOMA and KLNK.
