Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
402 AM CDT Mon May 22 2017

Skies had cleared Sunday evening across eastern Nebraska and
southwest Iowa, but more clouds began streaming in from the west
after midnight. One area of clouds across northeast Nebraska produced
a few sprinkles there. And a second band of cloud cover moving into
southeast Nebraska was associated with showers drifting east. By 4
AM, scattered showers were noted just south of the Beatrice and
Fairbury areas. Temperatures at 4 o`clock had fallen into the lower
and middle 50s across most of the area, but a few spots in southwest
Iowa dipped into the middle 40s.

An area of upper level low pressure is forecast to rotate south through
the Plains today, pushing a cold front into Nebraska and Iowa this
afternoon. This combination will produce scattered showers and
thunderstorms over much of Mid America today, beginning during the
morning in South Dakota and western Nebraska, then this afternoon
across the rest of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Some stronger
storms could occur in Iowa, southeast Nebraska, much of Kansas and
northern Missouri where gusty winds and some hail will be possible.

The showers and thunderstorms will continue into the evening, but
will become more isolated with the loss of daytime heating. Only
scattered showers will linger past midnight in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri
and southeast Nebraska.

Temperatures this afternoon are forecast to top out in the middle
60s to lower 70s. Overnight lows should drop back into the 40s over
most of Mid America, with 50s expected in Missouri and eastern
