1240 PM CDT Wednesday may 4 2016 

Short term...(today through friday) 
issued at 240 am CDT Wednesday may 4 2016 

Tranquil weather pattern will continue through the period as upper 
ridge dominates across the region. 

Little in the way of active weather expected through Friday with 
temperatures warming day to day as ridge axis shifts east across 
the plains region. A cold front will continue to drop south across 
the lower Missouri Valley this morning with high pressure building 
into the region this afternoon. Area will remain under weak 
surface high pressure through Thursday with south winds increasing 
Thursday night into Friday as the high moves further south into 
the lower Mississippi Valley. Another cold front will be moving 
south across the northern plains on Friday approaching the 
northern Nebraska border by Friday evening. 

Long term...(friday night through tuesday) 
issued at 240 am CDT Wednesday may 4 2016 

The above mentioned cold front will be moving into Nebraska Friday 
night bringing some chance of showers and thunderstorms to the 
area over mothers day weekend as the front slowly settles south 
toward Kansas. The front will help focus convection during this 
time as a series of short waves move into the region in advance of 
the closed upper low over the southwest. The chance of storms will 
then extend into early next week as the upper low itself finally 
moves into the region.
