Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
911 PM CDT Fri Apr 13 2018

Strong thunderstorms developed in southeast Nebraska and western
Iowa during the afternoon, but by 7 PM or so, most of that activity
had pushed east of the area. Meanwhile, areas of light rain and
drizzle were noted in northeast Nebraska, with a few spots starting
to report a mix of light rain and light snow. Otherwise, there was a
large range of temperatures across eastern Nebraska and southwest
Iowa at 9 PM. Albion Nebraska was the coldest at 36 degrees, while
Clarinda Iowa was still reporting 61 degrees.

A strong storm system over Nebraska and Kansas Friday evening is
expected to drift slowly east through Saturday afternoon, only
reaching northwest Missouri by sunset Saturday. To the north and west
of this system, widespread snows and blizzard conditions are expected
to continue overnight and most of Saturday. Areas from South Dakota
through most of Nebraska and western Kansas will see significant
snowfall and wind gusts to 50 mph. Farther to the east, scattered
showers and thunderstorms are likely across Iowa into Missouri and
eastern Kansas, with rain changing to snow on Saturday across eastern
Nebraska and northern and western Iowa.

Low temperatures by Saturday morning are forecast to range from the
teens in western Nebraska to near 50 in much of Missouri. High
Saturday afternoon will only manage the 20s from eastern South Dakota
into central Nebraska, but rebound into the 40s and 50s from eastern
Kansas into Missouri.
