Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
329 PM CST Fri Feb 16 2018

High pressure was centered over eastern Nebraska and western Iowa at
early afternoon, providing lots of sunshine and relatively light
winds. The sunshine help warm temperatures into the upper 20s and
lower 30s in most spots, with the warmest 3 PM reading coming in from
Beatrice at 34 degrees, while the cool spots were Tekamah and Norfolk
at 26. Clarinda, Shenandoah and Red Oak all came in with a 30 degree
temperature at 3 o`clock.

The high pressure was already beginning to slide off to the southeast
at mid afternoon, and will continue east into the Ohio Valley by
Saturday morning. Meanwhile a low pressure system moving across the
Northern Plains will push a weak cold front to the Nebraska and South
Dakota border by sunrise Saturday, with that front dropping into
Kansas and Missouri during the afternoon.

Clear skies and only light south winds overnight will allow
temperatures to fall into the 20s over most of Mid America, while
holding in the 30s for parts of Kansas and Missouri. Highs on
Saturday will be tempered somewhat by a switch to north winds behind
the cold front. However highs are still forecast to rebound into the
40s over most of Nebraska and Iowa, with 50s expected in Kansas and
Missouri. Cooler 30s will be found from South Dakota into far
northern Nebraska and much of northern Iowa.
