430 AM CDT WED JUL 20 2016
Some spotty showers and thunderstorms will be possible over parts
of the region today. These should be mainly in parts of western
and northern Nebraska...southeast South Dakota...southern
Minnesota and then into northern and eastern Iowa. Heat will start
to build across the Plains states today, and this is expected to
continue into at least Friday. The hot and humid weather is in
response to a strong ridge of high pressure building in the mid
and upper levels of the atmosphere over the central United States.
This ridge will start to move south toward the weekend, with
slightly cooler conditions from Nebraska and Iowa northward.
High temperatures today across mid America should vary from the
90s to around 105. Lows tonight will be mostly in the 70s.
