.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday)
Issued at 300 AM CDT Sun Sep 17 2017

Upper level short wave trough is lifting out negatively across the
Dakotas. This has allowed the surface cold front to move southeast
and at 07Z extended from eastern Iowa to southeast Kansas. The
front is forecast to stall out over southern Kansas and then lift
northward as a warm front tonight into Monday. Isentropic lift at
305K and 310K will occur over eastern Nebraska starting mid-day
today and increase clouds across the area during the afternoon.
Continued lift across the front will allow for thunderstorms to
develop after 00-03Z tonight across southeast Nebraska and then
spread northward during the night. Thunderstorm chances continue
during the day Monday until later in the afternoon and evening.

Tuesday is forecast to be dry as the weather system moves eastward
out of the area.

Issued at 300 AM CDT Sun Sep 17 2017

Large upper level trough moves into the northern and central
Rockies on Wednesday. One cold front will move across the area
Tuesday night into Wednesday. A chance of thunderstorms is
possible over northeast Nebraska on Tuesday night into Wednesday

Nebraska and southwest Iowa beginning Friday and continue through
the weekend.
