An upper level disturbance will move across the midlands today...
with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Chances will be highest

chances will be fairly low through Thursday night and heat will be
the main weather issue. A large dome of high pressure in the mid
levels of the atmosphere is expected to build over the southern and
central Plains. The combination of heat and humidity has prompted
the issuance of a variety of watch...warning and advisory products
to address the heat through Friday.

plains will be in the 90s to around 100. Highs across Minnesota and
Iowa will be mainly in the 80s, and Missouri lower and mid 90s. Lows
tonight will be mostly in the 70s, save for 60s for the western
Dakotas and Nebraska Panhandle. For eastern Nebraska and western
Iowa, highs in the upper 80s to mid 90s, and lows in the mid 70s.
