Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa

913 PM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017
A large area of showers had spread north into eastern Nebraska and
southwest Iowa late Friday afternoon, with those showers continuing
through the evening. The heaviest showers were noted in far southeast
Nebraska and along the Missouri River north into southeast South
Dakota. Cool northeast breezes of 15 to 25 mph made 9 PM temperatures
in the lower and middle 40s feel more like the 30s.
The strong low pressure system causing the rain across the area was
spinning east through northern Oklahoma Friday evening, and is
expected to swing northeast into central Missouri by Saturday
afternoon. Continued development of showers and thunderstorms from
eastern Kansas into Missouri is expected into Saturday afternoon,
while a cold rain is forecast to the north in Iowa and eastern
Nebraska. Farther to the north and west, decreasing clouds should
bring plenty of afternoon sunshine to much of South Dakota and
western sections of Nebraska and Kansas.
Temperatures will remain rather cool under the clouds and
precipitation through Saturday, with somewhat warmer temperatures
ahead of the low pressure system where milder southerly winds are
forecast. Expect low temperatures Saturday morning to range from the
upper 20s in western Nebraska to the middle 50s in southern Missouri.
Highs Saturday afternoon will hold in the 40s in most of Iowa and
eastern Nebraska where clouds and rain will hold on longer, but surge
into the 60s in western Nebraska where afternoon sun is expected.
