A low pressure system drifting through eastern Kansas continued to
generate showers across eastern Nebraska Wednesday evening. By
Thursday early morning, most of the rain was confined to southeast
Nebraska, and spreading northeast. Temperatures hadn`t changed a
whole lot from the afternoon, with 4 AM readings ranging from the
upper 30s in northeast Nebraska to the middle 40s over the rest of
eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa.
That low pressure system will continue an eastward drift into
northern Missouri today, then on into Illinois tonight. Scattered
showers are forecast to persist near and ahead of the low, with most
of Iowa, Missouri, eastern Kansas and southeast Nebraska seeing some
rain into the afternoon. A gradual decrease in the rain from west to
east is expected overnight, ending in eastern Nebraska, western Iowa
and eastern Kansas this evening, then the rest of Iowa and Missouri
by Friday morning.
Cloudy skies are forecast over all of Mid America both today and
tonight. A few breaks in the clouds are expected this afternoon in
western Nebraska and western Kansas, but clouds will quickly fill
back in as another storm system begins to spread out of the Rockies.
High temperatures this afternoon will hold in the 40s in Iowa,
eastern Nebraska and northeast Kansas, with 50s forecast over the
rest of the region. Lows tonight should fall back into the 30s over
most of Mid America.
