AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OMAHA/VALLEY NE
605 PM CDT SUN OCT 26 2014

.SHORT TERM...(TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY)
ISSUED AT 151 PM CDT SUN OCT 26 2014

A WEAK FRONTAL PASSAGE WILL MARK THE ONLY POTENTIAL FOR
PRECIPITATION DURING THIS FORECAST. THIS FRONT ENTERS THE COUNTY
WARNING AREA LATE SUNDAY NIGHT AND SHOULD BE THROUGH BY MONDAY
EVENING. PRECIPITATION CHANCES ARE MEAGER...BUT THE POTENTIAL
INCREASES AS YOU GET CLOSER TO THE NEBRASKA/SOUTH DAKOTA BORDER.
GIVEN THAT DEEPER MOISTURE IS SITUATED IN THIS AREA AND AREAS
FURTHER NORTH...DECIDED TO CONTINUE LOW CHANCE POPS FOR MONDAY.
WOULDN`T BE SURPRISED IF AREAS SOUTH OF THE BORDER GET NOTHING.

AIRMASS TEMPERATURES DURING THIS TIME FRAME WILL BE TRANSITIONING
TO AN OVERALL COOLER REGIME. IN REALITY THIS IS A CHANGE TO A MORE
SEASONABLE/NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

.LONG TERM...(WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY)
ISSUED AT 151 PM CDT SUN OCT 26 2014

DRY WEATHER LOOKS TO DOMINATE THE EXTENDED PORTION OF THE
FORECAST UNDER A LARGE AREA OF UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE. IN FACT
MUCH OF THE CONUS IS ABSENT OF MOISTURE EXCEPT FOR THE WEST COAST
AND NEW ENGLAND AREAS. SOME BRIEF WARM UPS COULD OCCUR IN OUR
REGION BUT OVERALL THE FORECAST IS FOR NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL
TEMPERATURES.

.AVIATION...(00Z TAFS FOR KOFK...KLNK AND KOMA.)
ISSUED AT 605 PM CDT SUN OCT 26 2014

LOOK FOR MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH THE PERIOD. A COLD FRONT WILL
PUSH THROUGH THE AREA OVERNIGHT...SHIFTING WINDS TO THE NORTHWEST.
SOME MVFR CEILINGS ARE POSSIBLE MONDAY MORNING. RAIN CHANCES LOOKED
BEST FOR KOFK...SO DID NOT MENTION IN THE TAFS FOR KOMA OR KLNK AT
THIS TIME. MIXING WILL INCREASE BY NOON WITH WINDS BECOMING GUSTY
FROM THE NORTH OR NORTHWEST.
