RAP DECREASES AND ENDS CONVECTION DURING THE MORNING WITH CHANCES
INCREASING AGAIN BY LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING NEAR THE SOUTH
DAKOTA BORDER BACK TOWARD CENTRAL NEBRASKA AS COLD FRONT
APPROACHES AND LOW LEVEL JET DEVELOPS. CHANCE POPS CONTINUE
OVERNIGHT INTO TUESDAY AS FRONT SLOWLY MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH THE
AREA. SOME LINGERING SLIGHT POPS FAR SOUTHEAST TUESDAY EVENING
THEN DRY BY LATE TUEDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY AS FRONT MOVES FURTHER
SOUTH.

HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE AREA TODAY BUT

SITES SHOULD REMAIN FREE OF PRECIPITATION OR LOWERED CEILINGS/VIS
FOR THE REST OF TODAY. A COLD FRONT WILL BRING SHOWERS/STORMS LATE

TIMING AND COVERAGE...BUT DID MAKE A BEST GUESS FOR A PERIOD OF
SHOWERS TO AFFECT KOFK/KOMA JUST AHEAD OF FRONTAL PASSAGE. LEFT
KLNK DRY FOR NOW WITH EVEN LOWER CONFIDENCE IN ITS VICINITY. WINDS
