A NORTHWEST FLOW OVER THE STATE KEPT SKIES MOSTLY CLEAR OVER THE 
CENTRAL PLAINS. THE EASTERN PLAIN WERE MOSTLY CLOUDY DUE TO A LOW

MOUNTAIN FRONT, CENTRAL AND EASTERN PLAINS. TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE 
UPPER 30'S TO LOW 40'S FOR MUCH OF THE REGION.

UNSETTLED WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TONIGHT AS AN ACTIVE 
NORTHWEST FLOW REMAINS OVER THE REGION. PACIFIC MOISTURE WILL BRING 
PRECIPITATION TO THE WESTERN AND CENTRAL MOUNTAINS THIS EVENING AND 
TONIGHT. THE EASTERN PLAINS WILL HAVE SOME CLEARING AHEAD OF THE 
DISTURBANCE APPROACHING THE REGION. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE 
NEAR SEASONAL AVERAGES FOR MUCH OF THE STATE.
