1147 AM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017
An area of high pressure stretching from Minnesota and Wisconsin
into Missouri and illinois, is expected to slide off to the east
today and tonight, while the low pressure system over the Rockies
moves into the Plains. A large area of rain will continue to spread
eastward across Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota, reaching the
central sections of Nebraska and Kansas this afternoon, with the
high pressure to the east limiting rain potential much of the day.
However rain will eventually spread across all of Nebraska and
Kansas and into western Iowa and Missouri overnight as the low
pressure system pushes east. Outside of rain areas, skies will
become cloudy, with the clouds and impending rain holding
temperatures down to near or below late March normals.
High temperatures this afternoon, 40s northern North Dakota,
southwest South Dakota, and western Nebraska to the mid 60s southern
Missouri. Lows tonight, 30s across Minnesota, the Dakotas and
northeast Iowa, to the mid 50s southwest Missouri and southeast
Kansas. For eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa, highs mid and
upper 50s, lows around 40 and lower 40s.
