Long term...
(monday night through next sunday)

As an upper trough over the western Continental U.S. Moves east into The
Rockies, a surface low will develop in northeastern Colorado and
track into south-central Nebraska Monday night. With increased
surface pressure gradient and south-southwest winds across our area,
temperatures will not be as cold Monday night, dropping into the mid
to upper 40s for lows.

Temperatures will be 10-15 degrees above normal on Tuesday, with
dry and breezy to windy conditions across our area. Winds will
veer to the west on Tuesday, with increased speeds and gusts. The
combination of these conditions should result in near critical
fire weather conditions across approximately the northern half of
our area where winds will be stronger, with elevated fire weather
concerns for the southern part of our area.

Temperatures will be much cooler following a cold frontal passage
Wednesday morning. The cooler airmass will reside over our area
Thursday into Friday. Another cold frontal passage is progged across
our area Friday afternoon and evening. An increase in cloud cover is
indicated for our area Friday into Saturday, but appears that any
appreciable rain chances will be south of our area. With the cold
frontal passage Friday, temperatures should remain on the cool
side into at least the first part of next weekend.
