Happy Turkey day, everyone! Let’s get to a forecast, shall we?
At 652PM, CT, Omaha was reporting clear skies with a temperature of 60 degrees. The Missouri Valley was at the back edge of a ridge that was parked over the southeast. A sharp trough over the Rockies was prepared to move quickly through the center of the country.
The system has been unable to tap into much moisture so far, and despite the seasonal strength of the system, it isn’t presently touching off any showers or storms. The system will finally begin drawing moisture late tomorrow, but only after the front is through Omaha. Some isolated showers may wrap around the low, as it will develop rapidly Friday night into Saturday, and an isolated shower or flurry may be possible Friday night or Saturday morning.
Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy and becoming chilly, with a stray drop or flake late. High 59, Low 36
Saturday – Rain snow mix early, but generally mostly cloudy with wind, High 40, Low 26
TWC: Tomorrow – Overcast High 61, Low 45
Saturday – Windy with a few snow showers developing later in the day. High 52, Low 38
AW: Tomorrow – Rather cloudy High 58, Low 38
Saturday – Winds gusting past 50 mph and cooler with clouds giving way to some sun High 42, Low 25
NWS: Tomorrow – Partly sunny (rain before midnight) High 59, Low 43
Saturday – A chance of flurries before noon. Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny,High 48, Low 32
WB: Tomorrow – Partly cloudy (showers in the evening) High 59, Low 40
Saturday – Partly cloudy. Windy…colder. Chance of flurries High 48, Low 36
I obviously foresee the system moving through the area a bit faster than other outlets, hence my cooler high on Saturday, and chace for flurries already on Friday. Satellite shows a pretty cloudy system.
