Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
451 PM CDT Sun Oct 22 2017

In the early morning hours, a frontal system associated with
showers and thunderstorms exited the far eastern portions of the
region. Following the front, a ridge of high pressure made its way
into the Central Plains today. This high pressure provided for a
pleasant day, with mostly sunny skies and cooler temperatures.
Highs ranged from the mid 60s to low 70s across central and
eastern Kansas. Relatively light winds from the west/northwest
prevailed across the state.

Overnight tonight and into tomorrow, a dry cold front will move
across the region. Lows tonight will be in the low to mid 40s
across Kansas, Nebraska, eastern Colorado, and Oklahoma. Skies
will remain clear, and winds are expected to remain fairly light
overnight, transitioning from southerly to northwesterly.

Tomorrow, highs across much of the region are forecast to be
similar to those experienced today, ranging from the low 60s in
portions of western Nebraska and eastern Colorado to near 70 in
central and eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. Mostly sunny skies are
expected again on Monday across the Central Plains. Wind speeds
out of the northwest will be noticeably higher, particularly in
Nebraska and portions of central Kansas, where speeds could reach
up to near 30mph by the afternoon hours.
