An area of showers and thunderstorms over central Nebraska gradually
worked east into northeast Nebraska during the evening. More showers
and storms were beginning to move into the rest of eastern Nebraska
as of 11 PM. Strong south winds of 15 to 25 mph with some gusts over
35 mph were noted in southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa as well.
Temperatures at late evening were in the 50s where thunderstorms were
seen in northeast Nebraska, while the rest of eastern Nebraska and
southwest Iowa were in the 60s or lower 70s.
The low pressure system responsible for the thunderstorms during the
evening will gradually move from eastern Colorado into northern
Oklahoma by Friday afternoon. A warm front extending northeast of the
low into eastern Nebraska and northern Iowa will continue to be a
focus for showers and thunderstorms through Friday afternoon. More
storms are possible ahead of the low from Oklahoma into eastern
Kansas and Missouri from around sunrise through Friday afternoon.
Outside of any of the thunderstorm areas, skies will be mostly
cloudy. And a wide range of temperatures are forecast, too. Lows
Friday morning will drop into the 30s in northwest Nebraska, but hold
in the 60s in Missouri and eastern Kansas. Highs Friday afternoon
should only be in the 40s from northern Nebraska and northern Iowa,
but climb into the 70s from southeast Nebraska and southern Iowa into
Kansas and Missouri.
