Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa

329 PM CDT Mon Oct 17 2016
An area of low clouds and fog persisted much of the morning in
northeast Nebraska, and by mid afternoon those clouds were hanging
tough from north of Columbus to Norfolk, Wayne and Yankton. Under
these clouds, temperatures were held in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
South of this cloud area, southwest winds gusting over 20 mph and
plenty of sunshine had pushed temperatures well into the 80s near
and south of Interstate 80.
A cold front dropping south through Mid America will travel through
Nebraska and Iowa tonight, then settle into southern Kansas and
Missouri by Tuesday afternoon. Cooler Canadian air is forecast to
filter in behind this front, dropping temperatures back toward
normal mid-October readings. A few showers or isolated thunderstorms
are possible during the evening in South Dakota and northern Iowa,
but otherwise dry conditions are expected both tonight and Tuesday.
Look for Tuesday morning lows to range from the 30s in western South
Dakota and western Nebraska, to the 50s and lower 60s in Missouri.
Highs Tuesday afternoon should rebound in the 60s over most of Mid
America, with some 70s forecast in Kansas and Missouri.
