Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
509 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

Clear skies and light winds allowed temperatures to drop into the 30s
across most of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa early this
morning. While most reporting locations had fallen into the lower and
middle 30s by 5 AM, temperatures ranged from a chilly 28 degrees at
Columbus to a more mild 41 in Albion. Areas of fog were also noted,
especially in southwest Iowa and along the river valleys of far
eastern Nebraska.

A low pressure system moving across the Northern Plains will bring
southwesterly winds to most of Mid America today and tonight. This is
a favorable wind direction for very warm temperatures for this time
of year, and combined with lots of sunshine, some record high
temperatures could be reached over a good part of the region this
afternoon. Then tonight, a weak weather disturbance may bring some
light rain to western South Dakota, but the rest of the region should
see mostly clear skies overnight.

Look for afternoon high temperatures to climb well into the 70s from
Missouri and Kansas north through Nebraska and into South Dakota. 60s
are forecast for most of Iowa. Lows tonight are forecast to settle
back into the 40s over most of Mid America, with some 30s expected in
western Nebraska.
