Upper level ridging moves across the region on Wednesday with
gradual warming into next weekend. The warmup will also be

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Sunday evening)
issued at 611 PM CDT Sat may 27 2017

Visible satellite and surface observations indicate a shield of
VFR (fl050-070) ceilings present across much of eastern NE as of
23z. The exceptions are in the koma and klnk vicinities where
westward surging outflow from early-day storms has eroded the
lower cloud cover. Latest short-term model guidance suggests that
these clouds should generally diminish through the evening, though
high clouds will increase from the west. Otherwise, ongoing
showers from east of konl to north of kodx should tend to pass to
the north of kofk this evening with persistent VFR conditions
anticipated at all three taf locations.
