Short term...(tonight through friday)
issued at 303 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 13 2015

Temperatures remain the topic of interest the next several days as models
continue to advertise northwest flow aloft ushering in a colder air mass
into the Central Plains early Thursday morning. More specifically...time-
section ensembles indicate the frontal passage through the Omaha metropolitan
should occur sometime around 12z.

Given this...there is a distinct possibility that temperatures over the northern
County Warning Area may be near-steady in nature Thursday afternoon as well as areas of
frost developing Friday morning.

Otherwise...nice day on Wednesday with highs in the low 70s.

Long term...(friday night through tuesday)
issued at 303 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 13 2015

After the chill down on Fri/Sat...ecm/GFS showing a warming trend by
early next week with highs in the middle 70s on Monday in response
to Pacific northwest trough kicking western Continental U.S. Ridge east and building heights over
the Central Plains. There does appear to be a small chance for precipitation
Monday night/Tuesday periods associated with increasing 305k upglide. Going
forecast all ready has small probability of precipitation in no changes planned.
