.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday)
Issued at 328 AM CST Sun Feb 11 2018

Large scale pattern has been rather stagnant then last several days
consisting of a broad trof over the CONUS with an upstream ridge
sitting off the west coast. At the sfc, high pressure remains in
control across the central Plains.

Overall dry conditions will prevail heading into early next week.
The one shot for light snow coming Monday evening over the extreme
northern CWA within area of enhanced 295k-300k isentropic upglide.
Probably no more than a half inch pretty much confined to
Knox/Antelope/Cedar/Pierce counties. Otherwise...cold conditions
continue with highs in the mid/upper 20s today...mid teens/low 20s
Monday...low/mid 30s Tuesday.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 328 AM CST Sun Feb 11 2018

The good news is there appears to be a short reprieve from the cold
weather coming mid-week. By Wednesday, southwesterly on the backside
of surface high pressure situated to the southeast will allow for
some waa into creep into the central Plains. At his point, believe
going fcst with highs in the mid/upper 40s is still reasonable.

weekend with highs Thursday and Friday only topping out in the
low/mid 30s.
