Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
359 AM CDT Wed Mar 14 2018

Skies were clear overnight across eastern Nebraska and southwest
Iowa. Nearly calm winds Tuesday evening had become southerly around 5
mph after midnight. Temperatures at 3 AM had dipped into the lower
and middle 20s in most areas, but were as high as 31 degrees in
Albion Nebraska, and as cool as 16 degrees in Clarinda Iowa.

High pressure over Mid America Wednesday morning will slide off to
the east during the day as low pressure begins to form in the Lee of
the Rockies. In between these systems, south to southwest winds are
forecast to increase across the region, leading to warm and breezy
conditions. The combination of warm temperatures, low humidity, and
gusty winds will lead to increased fire danger this afternoon,
especially across Kansas and southern Nebraska.

Meanwhile, another low pressure system riding through the Northern
Plains will nudge a cold front south into Iowa and northeast Nebraska
late in the day. That front should settle south toward the northern
borders of Kansas and Missouri overnight. No precipitation is
forecast with this front.

Under sunny skies, high temperatures are forecast into the 60s over
much of Mid America, but will range from some cooler 40s and 50s in
South Dakota and northern Iowa, to the 70s in western Kansas. Lows
tonight will drop into the 20s in most of Iowa and northern Iowa, but
hold in the 30s in Kansas and Missouri.
