FORECAST DISCUSSION
 Issued at 253 PM CDT Mon Sep 26 2022  .Forecast
Summary:  * Dry with daytime temperatures mainly
in the 70s. * Some patchy frost possible Tuesday
night.  .This Week:  A broad, midlevel trough
currently from the Great Lakes into southeastern
U.S. will shift east in response to the
progression of a midlevel low, which will track
from the Pacific NW coast into the Rockies during
the latter half of the work week. The 12z
deterministic models differ on the track and
timing of the low into the Great Plains this
weekend.  At the surface, a backdoor cold front
will push west through the area on Tuesday with
the coolest temperatures of the week (i.e., highs
in the mid 60s to lower 70s) expected on
Wednesday. Otherwise, daytime highs will be near
seasonal normals in the 70s. In regard to low
temperatures, we have undercut much of available
model guidance both tonight and Tuesday night when
the combination of light winds and mostly clear
skies will promote radiational cooling. Albion
dropped to 34 degrees this morning, and we could
see similar temperatures on Tuesday
night/Wednesday morning from Harlan and Onawa
toward Pender and Tekamah. So, some patchy frost
is certainly possible.  Breezy south winds are
likely develop on Thursday and Friday, so we will
be monitoring the situation for fire-weather
concerns, given the dry conditions.  As mentioned
above, there are model differences in the handling
of a midlevel low, which could move into the
Plains this weekend. Despite the differences, it
appears that the best precipitation potential will
remain to our west. We`ll have to wait and see.
