National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
620 AM 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 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 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 619 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

VFR conditions expected through period. A few sprinkles are
possible this evening, but not worthy of a mention in the TAFs.
Northwest surface winds will gust this afternoon to 15-20kts and
subside with sunset.
