REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR WESTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DODGE CITY KS
925 PM CDT SUN AUG 17 2014

During the morning hours today, skies remained mostly clear across
western Kansas. However, by early afternoon thunderstorms began
developing from southwest Nebraska through northwest Kansas, with
skies becoming partly to mostly cloudy. A few of these storms
produced strong winds and small hail. As these storms moved
southeast into southwest Kansas, the storms weakened and just
produced light rainshowers with gusts to around 30 to 40 mph during
the late afternoon and early evening. Precipitation reports across
southwest Kansas so far with these storms have generally been a
tenth of an inch or less. High temperatures today reached into the
upper 90s to around 100 across western Kansas, with upper 80s to mid
90s from eastern through central Kansas.

Upper level low pressure troughing will cross the Northern Plains
states late tonight through tomorrow, while upper level high
pressure ridging dominates the Central and Southern Plains. Surface
low pressure troughing will remain across the Central Plains through
tomorrow, with a cold front dropping south across western Kansas
tomorrow afternoon and evening. This front will bring a slight
chance for thunderstorms in western Kansas again late tomorrow
afternoon into the early evening. Temperatures will remain well
above normal across western and central Kansas through tomorrow.

Low temperatures tonight will drop into the low to upper 60 from
eastern Colorado through western Kansas, with upper 60s to low 70s
across central and eastern Kansas. Highs tomorrow will reach into
the upper 90s to around 100 from the Oklahoma panhandle through
southwest and central Kansas, with low to mid 90s across the rest of
Kansas.
