Unseasonably Mild Temperatures Expected Today

A cold front extended near sunrise, from western British Columbia, through Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. Some mid level moisture was streaming into the region, bringing some high level cirrus clouds to Nebraska and neighboring states.

Analysis this morning showed a very dry airmass near the surface, located ahead of the advancing cold front. Look for partly to mostly sunny skies, with high temperatures across western and north central Nebraska ranging from the lower to middle 60s across far north central and northeastern Nebraska - with lower to middle 70s expected elsewhere.


Very low relative humidity and breezy conditions are likely this afternoon across western Nebraska.
