Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
1003 PM CDT FRI JUL 22 2016 /903 PM MDT FRI JUL 22 2016/

Friday was a very hot day across western Kansas. Across western
Kansas, afternoon temperatures topped out at or above 100 degrees
once again. The hottest temperature in western Kansas was 106
degrees at Hays. The hottest temperature in the state from an
automated station was 109 at Salina! At 9pm, temperatures were
still in the upper 80s to lower 90s over much of Kansas. Some
strong to briefly severe thunderstorms were found across portions
of west central and north central Kansas. Quarter size hail and 60
to 70 mph wind gusts were reported from one of the thunderstorms
just north of Quinter.

A weak frontal boundary was found late this evening across
northern Kansas, which was left behind from thunderstorms earlier
in the day. This weak boundary will continue to be the focus for
thunderstorm activity through the night over mainly far northwest
Kansas. A weak upper level disturbance will aid in the
thunderstorm activity moving out of central Colorado.

On Saturday, temperatures will once again top out at or above 100
degrees over the region. A weak frontal zone extending from
central Nebraska to southeastern Colorado will become the focus
for thunderstorm activity late in the day across mainly far west
central and northwest Kansas. Winds will remain out of the south,
increasing to 15 to 20 mph during the midday to afternoon hours.
