314 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016

.SHORT TERM...(tonight through Saturday)
Issued at 252 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016

Quiet, tranquil, and very pleasant weather expected the next
couple of days with mostly clear skies and comfortable Temperatures
expected. Some patchy fog may develop tonight with clear skies
and light winds and low dewpoint depressions. While we have had a
decent drying day today, Nam was suggesting dense fog could
develop from David City to Columbus to Norfolk so will have to
watch that. Otherwise, will have patchy fog in the Platte River
valley and across western Iowa.

The next chance for showers and thunderstorms enters the area
later on Saturday as a mean trough begins to develop across the
western US and gulf moisture returns to the area. Will have small
Pops mainly Saturday afternoon and mainly in northeast NE.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 252 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016

Thunderstorm chances remain in the forecast through the holiday
weekend as a series of upper level disturbances move into the
area. Confidence in the details become less clear though by
Tuesday and Wednesday as GFS and ECMWF are somewhat out of sync on
placement of a cold front that tries to move into the area, which
could have big impacts on eventual precip and temperature trends.


Issued at 1220 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016

VFR conditions will prevail through the period as high pressure
builds into the region.
