Short term (this evening through Sunday night)
issued at 342 pm cdt Sat aug 24 2019
forecast concerns will be thunderstorms into this evening
followed by fog development late tonight.
A mid and upper level trough currently extended from western
south dakota through western nebraska into central kansas. One
lead disturbance is moving from central into eastern nebraska. A
second disturbance was located over the panhandle into extreme
northeast colorado. This disturbance will dig southeast across
southwest nebraska into north central kansas overnight. Mesoscale
models including the hrrr and rap13 indicate the best area for
thunderstorms into early this evening from southeast lincoln into
hayes and frontier county. Locally heavy rainfall is possible
along with gust winds and hail. A chance for thunderstorms across
eastern areas tonight to also diminish or end after midnight.
As stratus develops over the area tonight, areas of fog are
expected to develop after 09z and linger until 15z Sunday. This
should mainly occur near an south of highway 2. Locally dense fog
is possible through the morning commute as much drier air moves
in at the 850-500mb layer.
Sunday, after morning fog lifts across the southern half of the
area, stratus will erode from west to east. Stronger heating in
the west to bring highs to the upper 80s far western zones, while
in the east, highs only mid to upper 70s. An upper trough moving
into the northern plains will bring a chance for thunderstorms to
the dakotas. Isolated thunderstorms could move into northern
cherry county late afternoon.
Increasing chances for thunderstorms Sunday night as the upper
trough and cold front pushes through western nebraska. A belt of
strong deep layer shear will extend from wyoming into western
nebraska. Thunderstorms should develop into a linear MCS or two as
they move across portions of north central nebraska. Damaging
winds will be the main threat, also isolated large hail is also
possible. Further south and west, chances fall to a slight chance|
where models indicate little or no development.
Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 342 pm cdt Sat aug 24 2019
showers and thunderstorms should linger into Monday morning
across the eastern half of the area with skies becoming mostly
sunny. Behind the cold front, highs from 75 to 80 with a breezy
north to northwest wind.
Late Monday night into Tuesday, a chance for showers and a few
thunderstorms on the backside of the upper trough. A reinforcing

only the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Mainly dry conditions until Thursday night through Saturday.
During this time disturbances will track from the pacific
northwest across the central plains. Organized thunderstorms are

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
