Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
1137 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

...Updated Aviation Section...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Hot airmass will continue to combine with around 60 dewpoints for
persistent 100 degrees or higher heat indices though Saturday for at
least the eastern counties. Temperatures tonight will only fall into
the 70s, with warm upper 70s possible across the central Kansas
counties. Boundary layer mixing will resume mid morning Friday with
max gusts as high as 30 mph. Temperatures again will be as hot or
warmer where the heat advisory remains in place across the eastern
tier of DDC counties.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

By Saturday a cold front will be dropping south into west central
Kansas. Compressional heating/moisture pooling just had of the
front may make a larger area experience higher apparent
temperatures during the afternoon. As a result, a heat advisory
has been extended, in both time and area through Saturday
evening. Additionally, the stalled boundary will bring potential
for thunderstorms and clouds heading into Sunday with a
significant relief to the hot temperatures by Sunday afternoon.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday night)
Issued at 1137 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Yet another tranquil aviation period expected over central into
southwest Kansas as an upper level dome of high pressure
dominates the region. This will bring an unlimited ceiling and
visibility through Friday. The only aviation issue will be a
period of low-level wind shear tonight ahead of a deepening
trough of low pressure across eastern CO. South to southwest winds
will quickly increase to near 40 kt at 500-1000 ft with wind shear
possible.
