Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
408 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

A cold front began pushing into eastern Nebraska late Tuesday
evening, and by 4 AM was approaching Interstate 80. A showers and
thunderstorms developed along the front, mainly affecting northeast
Nebraska and parts of west central Iowa, but as of 4 o`clock, most
of the activity had diminished. Temperatures were quite a bit cooler
behind the front where winds had turned to the northwest. Readings
at 4 AM ranged from 57 degrees at Albion and 63 in Norfolk behind
the front, to 78 degrees ahead of the front in Beatrice and Falls

A low pressure system moving across the Northern Plains will
continue marching east today, driving a cold front to an eastern
Iowa to eastern Kansas line by late in the day. Scattered showers
and thunderstorms are possible along the front, especially this
afternoon when some strong storms are possible from eastern Iowa,
across northern Missouri, far southeast Nebraska, and northeast
Kansas. These same areas could see continued chances for
thunderstorms overnight as the cold front stalls then begins lifting
north as another low pressure system begins to develop in the High

Outside of these thunderstorm areas, skies are expected to be mostly
sunny today and mostly clear tonight. Cooler temperatures are also
forecast behind the front as northwest winds usher in cooler and
drier air. Look for high temperatures this afternoon to remain in
the 70s across South Dakota, most of Nebraska and northern Iowa,
while 80s are forecast south of the front in Missouri and Kansas.
Lows tonight should range from the 40s in western Nebraska to the
70s in eastern Kansas and Missouri.
