Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1035 AM CDT Sun Aug 13 2017

Scattered showers developed Saturday evening in central Nebraska,
and drifted through eastern Nebraska and western Iowa overnight and
Sunday morning. By 10 AM, most of the activity had pushed to and east
of the Missouri River, but a few showers remained over far eastern
Nebraska. Rain amounts came in generally between a few hundredths to
a quarter inch, but a couple of spots west of Norfolk, namely Elgin
and Oakdale, reported rainfall of almost an inch and a half. With the
showers came cloudy skies through much of the morning, but some
breaks in the cloud cover were beginning to develop in eastern
Nebraska. Lows this morning were mainly in the lower and middle 60s,
but a few spots had dropped into the 50s before sunrise. And by 10
AM, temperatures had only rebounded to between 64 and 70 degrees.

A low pressure system settling into the Northern Plains with push a
cold front to an eastern South Dakota to western Nebraska line late
today, with that front stalling there overnight. Scattered showers
and thunderstorms are possible near this front at just about any time
through tonight, affecting areas from eastern South Dakota and
northern Iowa, through most of Nebraska and western Kansas. Some
severe thunderstorms are possible as well, with the main focus from
southeast South Dakota through northeast Nebraska and into southwest
Nebraska later this afternoon and evening. Hail and strong winds are
the primary potential hazards.

Outside of the thunderstorm areas, skies should average partly cloudy
both today and tonight. High temperatures this afternoon are forecast
to top out in the lower and middle 80s in most locations, but may
hold in the 70s from eastern South Dakota through northern Iowa where
more clouds and showers are forecast. Lows tonight are expected to
settle back into the 50s in South Dakota and western Nebraska, but
hold in the 60s over the rest of Mid America.
