Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
301 PM CDT Fri Sep 15 2017

A warm and windy afternoon was observed across eastern Nebraska and
southwest Iowa. At 3 PM, temperatures had climbed into the upper 80s
and lower 90s, with south winds averaging 20 to 30 mph. A couple of
light showers or sprinkles were noted, but most areas were dry with
partly cloudy skies.

A strong cold front is forecast to move southeast through much of Mid
America later tonight and Saturday. The front extended from eastern
South Dakota into western Nebraska at mid afternoon, and is forecast
to move to a northwest Iowa to northwest Kansas line by Saturday
morning. Scattered thunderstorms are possible near and north of the
cold front overnight, affecting areas from northern Nebraska into
southern South Dakota. As the front pushes farther southeast during
the day Saturday, thunderstorm chances will shift with it. Much of
Iowa into eastern Nebraska and eastern Kansas could see some strong
thunderstorms by the afternoon, with areas behind the front seeing
mainly showers from northern Nebraska through South Dakota.

Much cooler temperatures will follow the front as well. Overnight
lows are expected to drop into the 40s in western South Dakota and
western Nebraska behind the front, but remain in the 60s to near 70
from Kansas through eastern Nebraska and into Iowa. Highs Saturday
afternoon should rebound into the 85 to 90 degree range ahead of the
front in eastern Kansas through southeast Nebraska and much of Iowa,
but hold in the 60s or lower 70s over the rest of Nebraska and South
