Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa

357 AM CDT Mon Oct 24 2016
After a cold front moved south through eastern Nebraska and
southwest Iowa early Sunday, cool, Canadian high pressure settled
into the region later Sunday night. Mainly clear skies and light
northeast winds allowed temperatures to cool into the 30s and 40s by
4 AM Monday.
High pressure over Minnesota and Iowa is forecast to slowly drift
off to the southeast today as a low pressure system begins to gather
in the Rockies. Between these systems, south to southeast winds will
return to Mid America, helping to warm temperatures for at least
part of the region.
While most of Mid America will see sunny skies in the afternoon,
increasing clouds are forecast from western Nebraska into South
Dakota. Highs this afternoon should range from some chilly 50s in
northern Iowa, to the 70s in western Nebraska and southern Kansas.
Overnight lows will generally fall back into the 40s, with some 50s
forecast in most of Kansas and western Missouri.
