Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
527 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Monday)
Issued at 245 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017

Area remains under the influence of strong northerly flow at 20Z
with the next piece of energy coming out of Canada approaching
the upper Midwest. Main impact will be mostly cloudy conditions
tonight into Saturday before more extensive clearing arrives by
Saturday afternoon. Forecast soundings show limited moisture
available for any precip through Saturday.

A warm front will be pushing across the northern plains on
Saturday with a return to warmer temperatures for the forecast
area by Sunday and Monday. Once again little moisture to speak of
during this time with mainly sunny conditions on Sunday and
increasing clouds during the day Monday as the next wave tracks
northeast of the area across the upper Midwest. The system on
Monday will result in windy conditions for the area with
increasing northwest winds during the morning.

.LONG TERM...(Monday night through Friday)
Issued at 245 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017

Area remains between a persistent eastern trough and western
ridge during the upcoming week with occasional impulses moving
through the region in the strong northwest flow. Main weather
features stay to our east however during this time, with a period
of windy weather the main impact on the back side of the clipper
systems. Temperatures look to trend a little above seasonal
normals during the week.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 525 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017

MVFR ceilings should SCT out at KOMA shortly. Then expect VFR
conditions through the rest of the evening with winds mainly under
12 knots. Winds should increase later tonight from the north or
northwest as a reinforcing shot of colder air moves in behind a
front. There appears to be some potential for MVFR ceilings mainly
at KOFK and KOMA later tonight. Will include a TEMPO group for
that and monitor through the evening.
