Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1108 AM CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

A cold front was moving through eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa
at late morning, bringing north winds and cooler temperatures with
it. At 11 AM, temperatures were in the 50s behind the front over most
of northeast Nebraska, while temperatures were in the 70s ahead of it
in southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa. The coolest 11 o`clock
reading was at Norfolk with 55 degrees, while Clarinda was the
warmest at 77. Scattered showers and thunderstorms were also noted
along and north of the front, but that activity had been decreasing
in intensity toward late morning.

The strong cold front extending from Minneapolis to Omaha and
southwest Kansas at late Saturday morning will continue pushing
southeast this afternoon, reaching a central Iowa to eastern Kansas
line by this evening. The threat of thunderstorms will remain in the
forecast ahead of the front, with some strong to severe storms
possible from southwest Iowa into eastern Kansas late this afternoon
and evening. The cold front will maintain a southeast push overnight,
reaching central Missouri by daybreak Sunday. And scattered showers
and thunderstorms will remain possible across southern Iowa into
Missouri and eastern Kansas overnight.

Behind the cold front, a few showers or storms are still possible
both this afternoon and tonight in Iowa and Nebraska. However the big
weather story behind the front is the cooler temperatures and gusty
north winds. Expect afternoon temperatures to range from the 50s in
South Dakota, 60s in most of Nebraska, to the 80s in Missouri and
Kansas. Lows tonight will fall off into the 30s in western parts of
South Dakota and Nebraska, with 40s and 50s forecast over the rest of
Nebraska and most of Iowa, and 60s in Missouri and eastern Kansas.
