FORECAST DISCUSSION
Updated Aviation Forecast Discussion... 
.DISCUSSION... Issued at 255 PM CST Thu Feb 27
2020  Tonight and Tomorrow: Precipitation can be
seen on radar in south central Nebraska. It is
associated with a shortwave embedded in the
northwest flow currently over the area. Totals
from that have been on the light side. Eastern
Nebraska and western Iowa could possibly see some
light snow or drizzle of its own tonight as
additional shortwaves embedded in the northwest
flow move across the area. With weak forcing and
low level dry air, precipitation (if it does
occur) will be on the light side. Any snowfall
will be on the light side with totals under an
inch. This is a low probability, low QPF event so
no significant impacts are expected. The best
chances for snow will be from 8 pm tonight until
10 am tomorrow morning. After this precipitation
chance passes, the forecast calls for a few dry,
sunny days. Skies will gradually clear tomorrow
and high temperatures will range from the mid 40s
along the NE/SD border up to the mid 50s at the
NE/KS border.  Saturday and Sunday: For the
weekend, warmer than average temperatures are
expected as warm air advection and upper level
ridging build across the central CONUS.
Temperatures Saturday should reach the upper 60s
and Sunday will be a bit cooler as increased cloud
cover is expected.  Monday through Thursday: A
clipper system that moves south out of Canada is
expected to impact the area on Monday. It will
bring with it a cold front and a chance of
precipitation. It is only March, so snow is still
a reasonable expectation. High temperatures Monday
are forecasted to reach the low 40s in the
southern portion of the forecast area. What this
indicates is that this will be yet another
difficult precipitation type forecast for the
area. Precipitation types on Monday are likely to
be a mix of rain and snow. After Monday, medium
range guidance suggest that split flow will
develop mostly leaving Nebraska precipitation free
through Thursday. That will also lead to
temperatures right around the climatic average
next week (mid to upper 40s).
