TEMPERATURES APPEAR TO BE THE PRIMARY FOCUS IN THE SHORT TERM.

TROUGH MEANWHILE WAS ACROSS EASTERN DAKOTAS INTO CENTRAL KANSAS.
NORTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN STRONG AND GUSTY OVER THE

OFF TO THE EAST. CLOUDS LOOK TO REMAIN FOR MUCH OF THE DAY
ESPECIALLY IN EASTERN PARTS OF THE AREA. BETWEEN THE CLOUD COVER
AND COLD ADVECTION EXPECT TEMPERATURES TODAY TO MAINTAIN A NEARLY
STEADY PROFILE THROUGH THE DAY. SECOND UPPER WAVE MOVES ACROSS THE
REGION TONIGHT WITH VARIABLE CLOUDS EXPECTED TO BE PRIMARY RESULT.

ANOTHER CLIPPER DROPS INTO THE NORTHERN PLAINS ON TUESDAY WITH
WARMER AIR PULLED NORTH INTO THE REGION IN ADVANCE OF THE SYSTEM.
A PERIOD OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION IS POSSIBLE FOR MAINLY EASTERN
PARTS OF THE AREA AS THE LOW MOVES ACROSS TUESDAY NIGHT.
TEMPERATURES SUGGEST MAINLY IN THE FORM OF SNOW BUT SOME MIX
POSSIBLE INITIALLY BEFORE COLD AIR DEEPENS BEHIND THE LOW.
