Our Nebraska week is on once more. Off to the state’s largest city.
At 1052AM, CT, Omaha was reporting a temperature of 82 degrees with clear skies. Low clouds were still burning off just to the south of Omaha. The moisture in the atmosphere is on the verge of moving out. Dew points away from the Missouri are 5-10 degrees lower than they are in Omaha.
The next two days will be marked by a strengthening of the jet over the center of the country, which will indicate a greater dichotomy in air masses to the north and south. Omaha will be under the jet, which means surface troughing and a persistent threat for rain the next two days as well.

A little less aggressive on the rain than I was across the board. Of course, the temperatures tomorrow could be affected by clouds, but may also be bolstered by strengthening southerly flow and perhaps some compressional heating ahead of a weak boundary. We shall see.
