The majority of the area experienced a cold rain and blustery, east
winds of 20 to 30 mph through mid-afternoon, with temperatures in
the middle to upper 30s. However, a wintry mix of precipitation occur
across northeast Nebraska into northwest Iowa, where temperatures
had dipped at or below the freezing mark. A light accumulation of
ice was being reported on elevated surfaces, including power lines
and trees.

A strong low pressure system continued to spin slowly across north
central Kansas, and will continue to drift east into the early
evening hours, eventually moving into eastern Missouri overnight.
As the low moves east, widespread precipitation will shift 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.

Daytime temperature only rose into the 20s and 30s from South Dakota
into northern Nebraska. Southern Nebraska & Iowa, northwest Missouri
and extreme northeast Kansas ranged from the middle 30s to lower 40s.
Much warmer conditions persisted across southern Kansas and Missouri,
where afternoon highs peaked in the middle and upper 70s. Overnight
temperatures will dip into the 20s in central South Dakota, 30s and
40s in Nebraska and Iowa, to the lower to middle 40s in Missouri and
southern Kansas.
