Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Hastings NE
249 PM CST Tue Dec 11 2018

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 242 PM CST Tue Dec 11 2018

Thick mid-high level cloudiness is overhead as expected this
afternoon in association with the passing trough. Wind at 850 mb
is out of the northwest and zipping along at 40-45 kts, but due to
the warm temperatures at 850 mb and the extreme temperature
inversion, this wind will not mix to the surface.

The sky cover will eventually clear as the trough departs,
clearing our sky for tonight and into Wednesday.

Wednesday will be between features within our continued
progressive flow, and will warm up nicely in the 40s for most
locations.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 242 PM CST Tue Dec 11 2018

Yet another wave is expected to arrive Wednesday night and
Thursday, bringing in stronger cold air advection than the current
wave. Most of any precip will be focused south of the CWA, however
we could squeeze out some flurries (possibly some sprinkles) Wed
night/Thursday, but by no means anything of much significance.

The rest of the forecast will be relatively mild and dry and is
consistently forecast by extended numerical model ensembles and
operational runs.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Wednesday)
Issued at 1158 AM CST Tue Dec 11 2018

Low-level wind shear behind a surface front/trough is the biggest
issue and should be short-lived. Thick mid-high sky cover should
give way to no ceiling farther behind the trough this evening.
