Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service North Platte NE 302 AM CST Sat Feb 27 2021
SYNOPSIS. Issued at 302 AM CST Sat Feb 27 2021
A broad area of surface low pressure extended from southeast MT through central MN, southward into Ne and eastern CO. An upper trough extended through the Four Corners Region with a baroclinic leaf indicated on satellite from southeast UT, nwrn CO, into sern WY and the NE panhandle. Temperatures at 08Z across western NE ranged from 25 to 30.
SHORT TERM. (Today through Sunday) Issued at 302 AM CST Sat Feb 27 2021
The primary forecast concern is the potential for light snow accumulations across northern NE tonight. An 500mb trough is beginning to close off across northwest WY attm. As indicated by the latest IR satellite imagery. This trough will maintain a closed low across central and ester central WY today, then across the northwest Sandhills this evening. A cold front will be driven across much of the forecast area by 00Z. With the upper flow swrly ahead of the trough and closed low late this afternoon and evening, an area of rain is expected across the eastern half of nctrl NE, with rain quickly changing to light snow across the western half of nctrl NE by early evening. Prefer the deep and further south solution of the GFS and GEFS ensemble. Taking into account various CAM solutions, banded snowfall is likely, with varying solutions in location and suggesting portions of Cherry County appear most likely to see heavier banded snowfall. As the upper trough becomes strongly positively tilted and the closed lows lift quickly into srn MN, light snow should overspread northern NE after 06Z and end from west to east 09Z-12Z. Snowfall amounts from a dusting up to a half inch near highway 2 and 91, then 1 to 2 inches to about 40 miles south of the NE/SD state line. An area of conditional symmetric instability (CSI) is indicated from sern SD into srn MN 00Z-12Z to enhance snowfall rates. This could affect Boyd and northern Holt county, so will need to monitor model trends today.
Due to considerable cloud cover developing today, and the progressive movement of the cold front, when near to slightly cooler than the previous forecast. Warmest highs near 50s across far sern areas.
Northwest winds increase tonight, after midnight to 10 to 20 mph. Wind chills into the single digits expected across the west.
Clearing skies Sunday in northwest flow behind the upper trough. weak warm air advection in the afternoon with winds backing to westerly and highs from near 40 to the lower 40s.
LONG TERM. (Sunday night through Friday) Issued at 302 AM CST Sat Feb 27 2021
The dry weather trend will continue through next week as periods of upper ridging and zonal flow dominate the western and central Conus. This will support a warming trend with temperatures remaining above normal in the 50s. Some low 60s also forecast at times.
Medium range models including the GFS and ECMWF do track an upper low across the Four Corners Wednesday or Thursday, and across Oklahoma Thursday or Friday. While the track of this system should track south of the area, some potential exists for a track further north into Kansas.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night) Issued at 1116 PM CST Fri Feb 26 2021
A strong storm affecting the nrn Rockies this evening will sweep into nrn Nebraska and SD Saturday and continue Saturday night.
VFR is generally expected across wrn and ncntl Nebraska tonight and Saturday morning.
Areas of MVFR ceilings and vsbys in -SN are expected to develop along and north of highway 20 west of KANW 18z-00z Saturday afternoon. There is a chance IFR will develop in this area also and this would be most likely near KGRN-KCDR.
IFR/local LIFR is expected along and north of highway 20 Saturday evening.
LBF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
