National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
109 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday)
Issued at 249 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Quiet weather on tap today with breezy northwest flow and plenty
of sunshine. High temps climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s, and
winds will be northwesterly at 15 to 25 mph. Models are now
hinting at a weak front currently over the northern Rockies
moving into the local area tonight. This may touch off isolated
showers but little if any meaningful rain is expected and it could
very well just be a few sprinkles.

Pleasant weather continues for Memorial Day with continued breezy
northwesterly flow, but slightly cooler temperatures in the lower
to mid 70s.

Similar conditions expected for Tuesday, although there will be a
slight chance of afternoon showers along the KS/NE border as a
reinforcing front moves in from the north.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 249 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Dry weather expected Wednesday, but shower/storm chances return
Wednesday night into Thursday as moisture and instability build
northward from the southern Plains. Spotty rain chances remain in
the forecast Friday into Saturday, although models are not in
general agreement of timing and placement, thus confidence in the
forecast details by days 6/7 are somewhat low.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
Issued at 1225 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

VFR conditions are forecast at all sites through the period.
