Weather Summary for Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa
National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE
1125 AM CDT Fri Mar 16 2018

Widespread rains moved into eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa early
Friday morning, with some rumbles of thunder heard as well. By mid
morning, the cold rain and easterly winds of 20 to 30 mph continued
over much of the area, as temperatures fell into the 30s in most
spots. However in northeast Nebraska, temperatures had dipped to the
freezing mark, and some light accumulation of ice was being reported
on elevated surfaces.

A strong low pressure system spinning into central Kansas at late
morning will continue to drift east this afternoon, and eventually
move into eastern Missouri overnight. Widespread precipitation is
expected north and east of this low through tonight.

Rain and drizzle is forecast for eastern Nebraska into Iowa, with
showers and thunderstorms from eastern Kansas into Missouri. Areas of
freezing rain and snow are expected in central and western Nebraska,
as well as much of South Dakota. Winter storm warnings for snow and
ice have been posted for those areas. The precipitation will
gradually end from west to east overnight, with only lingering rain
or snow in eastern Iowa expected by sunrise Saturday.

Afternoon highs are forecast to hold in the 20s and 30s in South
Dakota and northern Nebraska, but climb into the 60s in Kansas. Lows
tonight will range from near 20 in western Nebraska to near 40 in
southern Missouri.
