000 FXUS63 KOAX 170429 AFDOAX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 1129 PM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017 .SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Thursday) Issued at 305 PM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017 ...Dry and Mild Weather This Week... As expected...lows this morning were quite variable from 29 degrees at Columbus to 39-41 degrees at Omaha/Omaha NWS and Council Bluffs Iowa. Offutt AFB did reach 32 degrees, while other spots in Sarpy, Douglas...and Lancaster Counties were in the mid 30s. A few cirrus have been on the increase today as a weak shortwave drops southeast across the Central Plains in northwest flow aloft. Another shortwave in the flow follows in behind tonight. Both weather systems move through dry, however southwest winds tonight do try to advect a little moisture northeast ahead of the front and low temperatures are held to the 40s. South flow prevails with the h85 thermal ridge across the forecast area for Tuesday. With a mild start...high will top out in the 70s. Another dry frontal passage for Wednesday with highs in the 70s. The EC has a little more moisture pooled near the front...so may need to boost clouds there. Surface high pressure builds in for Thursday morning...so will trend toward the lower temperature guidance. South flow quickly returns ahead of the h5 trough developing over Colorado/Arizona. This could bring in more clouds and should again boost highs in the 70s. .LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Monday) Issued at 305 PM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017 Unsettled weather approaches Friday with increasing clouds and maybe a spotty shower. South winds should be on the brisk side. Scattered shower/thunderstorm chances develop Friday night with better coverage Saturday along the cold front. The cold front exits the area sometime between Saturday night into Sunday morning. The GFS is a little faster while the EC is a little slower. Still highs in the 70s Friday...70s with a few 60s Saturday and cooler highs in the 60s Sunday. && .AVIATION...
