AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Hastings NE 629 AM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020
SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 343 AM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020
Radar continues to show a few returns mainly in the northwest part of the area. They continue to move slowly to the east. Clouds continue across the area, but there are a few breaks just to the west of the forecast area.
The upper level wave responsible for the current precipitation is expected to move out of the area and the precipitation should come to an end around day break.
The clouds should gradually diminish during the day. The clouds will thin out and move to the east. By mid day, the western part of the area will be mostly clear. The sunshine and winds from the south or southwest will allow temperatures to warm into the 60s. Southwest winds and warm temperatures generally lead toward near critical fire weather, but the dew points are in the 40s and so relative humidity will not drop very low. Mostly clear skies are expected through tonight.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Monday) Issued at 343 AM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020
Wednesday will continue to be dry and temperatures will be warm. Have warmed temperatures a little for Wednesday. Once again, the dew points are in the 40s and relative humidity does not get very low.
During the day on Wednesday, a surface low develops to the west of the forecast area. Winds increase a little from the south ahead of a cold front. By Wednesday night, an upper level wave moves into the area and the surface low and cold front move into the forecast area. There is a chance for some light rain behind the cold front as it moves through. During the evening, precipitation is possible in the north and spreads to the south overnight. During the morning, the front moves through the rest of the forecast area and there is a chance for rain for much of the area during the day. There could be a little thunder in the vicinity of the front in the southeast part of the area. The thunder is possible through the evening.
Overnight, cold air slides into the northwest part of the region. The rain should mix with then change to snow from northwest to southeast. Have some light freezing rain during the change over to snow. There is a short period of time where there is not a lot of ice in the dendritic level. With that in mind, there could be a little freezing rain, but with the surface a little warmer there will not be a lot of accumulation. The far southeast will see a little mix of rain or snow Friday morning as the precipitation moves out of the area. Friday will be cold with highs in the 40s.
Friday night into Saturday will be dry. A surface high moves through the area and with light winds, the temperatures will be in the 20s.
The period Saturday night through Monday models have some differences. There is southwest flow across the area and there are a few waves that move through. There will be some chances for precipitation. Saturday night the temperatures will be cold enough for snow to be mixed in with the rain in the northwest. Do not expect there to be precipitation all of the time, but on and off. Sunday night, there is a stronger wave that moves through and there will be a chance for some thunderstorms. Monday should be dry. Temperatures will warm up Sunday and Monday.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 12Z Wednesday) Issued at 626 AM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020
A little clearing has allowed for fog to form near the edge of the clouds this morning. The visibility has been a little variable this morning. Expect the clouds to move out of the area and the sun should burn off the fog quickly this morning. Low level wind shear is expected at the end of the period.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
