Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
110 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

...UPDATE TO LONG TERM...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 1217 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

A few showers/isolated thunderstorms may linger across central and
eastern portions of southwest Kansas early this morning as an upper
level shortwave lifts northeast out of northeast Colorado across
northwest Kansas and into southwest Nebraska. A southeast upslope
flow and enough instability will be present to support possible
periods of showers and a few isolated thunderstorms through this
evening. Meanwhile, upper level ridging will begin to slowly build
in across the Central Rockies to finish out the period Monday night.
A warming trend will continue today as prevailing southeries draw
warmer air northward into western Kansas. Should see highs well up
into the 90s(F) this afternoon with lows generally down into the
70s(F) tonight.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 108 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Hot and dry conditions are likely through the end of the week as
upper level ridging sets up and dominates across the Central Plains
for much of the period. An extremely weak flow aloft associated with
the upper high centered across the region will cap precip chances
through at least Thursday. Prevailing southerlies during the entire
week and ridging aloft will allow highs to climb well into the mid
to upper 90s(F) each day with some locations seeing highs pushing
above 100F by the end of the week.

Issued at 1200 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Light southeasterly winds will persist overnight as a lee side trough
of low pressure slowly develops across eastern Colorado. Winds will
