A cold front will continue sliding southeast through the forecast
area today, veering winds to the northwest and gradually ushering in
cooler temperatures and drier conditions. Although most showers have
dissipated along and near the surface front, a few sprinkles are
possible as the upper trough moves over this afternoon/evening, and
widespread cloud cover will likely continue through most of the day.
As a result, temperatures this afternoon are not expected to recover
much following frontal passage, and will top out in the mid 60s CWA-
wide. All precipitation, whether measurable or not, will exit the
region today, and no additional rainfall is expected for several

Temperatures will remain below normal for Sunday and Monday as the
upper trough slowly pushes east and surface high pressure drifts
across the central and eastern Plains. By Tuesday, a warming trend
will begin as an upper-level ridge builds and shifts east across the
central CONUS, and by Wednesday, highs will be firmly in the 80s
throughout the CWA -- possibly reaching the upper 80s by the end of
the work week. Thunderstorms will become possible by Wednesday, but
chances will be rather low with the upper jet focusing across the
far northern Plains.

Low-level stratus deck will remain in place through the afternoon and
into the overnight hours. Will see gradual improvement through the
evening with ceiling heights, though will remain MVFR until early Sunday
morning. At that time, a dry air mass from the northwest will replace
the low-level moisture with conditions improving to VFR by the end of
the period. NNW winds will veer slightly through Sunday morning,
becoming NE while weakening with time.
