Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1141 PM CDT Thu May 18 2017

During the evening showers and thunderstorms spread out of Kansas
into southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa, reaching the Omaha
metropolitan area by late evening.  Otherwise considerable
cloudiness and cooler temperatures persisted.

A potent storm system will move over the central High Plains
tonight, with further development expected along the frontal
boundary over Kansas and Missouri.  As the upper storm system moves
eastward, a large area of rain with embedded thunderstorms will
spread north over Nebraska and Iowa, with thunderstorms over iowa
and eastern Nebraska.  Then on Friday showers will continue
spreading northward across most of South Dakota and into southern
Minnesota. Several rounds of thunderstorms will produce significant
rainfall accumulations between tonight and Friday evening, setting
the stage for both flash flooding and river flooding.  Storm total
rainfall through early Saturday will range from about one and one-
half inches across north-central and northeast Nebraska to three and
one-half inches in southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa.

Lows temperatures tonight, 30s across northern Minnesota and North
Dakota, to the mid 60s southern Missouri.  Highs on Friday, 40s for
western and northern Nebraska, southern South Dakota and northwest
Iowa, to the lower 80s southern Missouri.
