Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
337 PM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

A very windy afternoon was seen across eastern Nebraska and southwest
Iowa, behind a cold front that slammed through the region early in
the day. Northwest winds frequently gusted to 45 mph during the late
morning and afternoon. By 3 PM, gusts averaged 35 to 45 mph, with
temperatures ranging from the upper 30s in northeast Nebraska to the
upper 40s in southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa. A few sprinkles
were also noted from time to time.

The strong cold front that moved through the region on Monday will
travel well south of the Plains tonight, moving into the Gulf of
Mexico. Behind the front, high pressure is forecast to settle into
Mid America, bringing decreasing winds and cold temperatures. On
Tuesday, a low pressure system in southern Canada will turn winds to
the west across the Plains, helping temperatures rebound a bit from
the chilly morning lows.

Otherwise we can expect decreasing clouds over much of Mid America
tonight, but another band of cloud cover will spread across the
region from South Dakota into Iowa on Tuesday. Overnight lows are
forecast to drop into the teens in most of Iowa, and hold in the 20s
across the rest of the region. Highs Tuesday afternoon will range
from some chilly 30s in Iowa and Missouri, to the 50s and maybe lower
60s in western parts of Nebraska and Kansas.
