Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1028 PM CDT Wed Mar 22 2017

Mainly cloudy skies and brisk southeast winds of 10 to 20 mph kept
temperatures from falling off too far this evening. By 10 PM, most
readings across eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa were in the
middle 40s, but ranged from a cool 41 degrees in Wayne to a warmer
53 in Beatrice.

The strong southeast winds are the result of a strengthening low
pressure system currently in the central Rockies. That system is
forecast to drift into eastern Colorado and western Kansas late
Thursday afternoon. Ahead of it, south to southeast winds will draw
Gulf moisture north into Mid America, leading to areas of drizzle and
fog, and perhaps a few rain showers, through Thursday morning. Then
during Thursday afternoon, a few thunderstorms are possible from
western Kansas into central Nebraska, with showers likely from
eastern Nebraska into Iowa.

Temperatures overnight shouldn`t fall off too much farther than late
evening readings, bottoming out in the 40s in Nebraska, Kansas and
Missouri, with 30s forecast in Iowa. Highs Thursday afternoon will
surge into the 70s in Missouri, Kansas and central Nebraska, with
some 80s in western Kansas. Cooler highs in the 50s are expected in
