Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
1059 AM CDT SAT MAY 21 2016 /959 AM MDT SAT MAY 21 2016/

Skies were cloudy overnight and this morning across central and
parts of western Kansas. However, skies were sunny in far western
Kansas late this morning. Winds were from the south at 15 to 25
mph. Low temperatures were in the middle 50s to lower 60s across
central and western Kansas.

A deep upper level storm system is expected to persist across the
western United States through the weekend. A trough of low
pressure at the surface will continue in the lee of the Rockies,
resulting in south winds and plenty of moisture from the Gulf of
Mexico. With the abundant moisture, skies will be mostly cloudy
across the central plains through Sunday, with sunshine across
the high plains of far western Kansas, eastern Colorado and the
western panhandles. Isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop
late this afternoon across far western Kansas. These storms could
be severe with very large hail, damaging winds and possibly even a
tornado. Severe thunderstorms are also possible Sunday afternoon
and evening from western Kansas into the panhandles.

Highs today are expected to range from the mid 60s in north
central Kansas and south central Nebraska to the upper 80s in
extreme southwestern Kansas, southeastern Colorado and the western
panhandles. Lows tonight will vary from the mid to upper 50s in
south central Nebraska to the mid 60s in western Oklahoma.
