Mid and high clouds kept skies mostly cloudy today, with a few
thunderstorms developing in portions of far western Kansas late this
afternoon. Gusty southerly winds and warm temperatures also
prevailed across western Kansas. Highs only reached the upper 60s to
low 70s in northeast Colorado and northwest Kansas, with upper 70s
to mid 80s across the rest of Kansas.

An upper level low pressure system in the Desert Southwest will move
to near southwest Kansas by morning, while an area of surface low
pressure to the lee of the Rockies moves into western Kansas, as a
cold front drops southeast into northwest Kansas before stalling by
mid day. This upper level system will bring an increasing chance for
rainshowers and thunderstorms across western Kansas by mid day
tomorrow. Rainfall amounts are expected to be half an inch or less,
although some locations may receive significantly more in some of
the heavier thunderstorms. Temperatures will remain near normal
across western Kansas.

Low temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 40s to low 50s
from eastern Colorado through far western Kansas, with mid 50s to
low 60 across the rest of Kansas. Highs tomorrow will reach the
upper 60s to low 70s from eastern Colorado through western Kansas,
with mid to upper 70s in central and eastern Kansas.
