National Weather Service Dodge City KS
916 PM CDT FRI AUG 19 2016 /816 PM MDT FRI AUG 19 2016/

Scattered showers and thunderstorms moved northeast across
northwestern Kansas for much of the day before additional storms
developed in central Kansas during the afternoon and early evening
hours. Skies were partly cloudy across the remainder of western
Kansas. High temperatures ranged from 76 degrees at Hill City to
95 degrees at Elkhart.

As an upper level trough moves east across the Northern Plains, a
strong cold front will be through most of Kansas except for the
southeast portion by late tonight. The front should be south of west
Texas and most of Oklahoma by Saturday afternoon. Cool surface high
pressure will settle into the Central Plains Saturday. Storms
across southeastern Kansas will continue to move toward the east
overnight as will storms in the Southern High Plains. Much cooler
temperatures can be expected behind the front tonight, especially
in the Central High Plains. Temperatures will also be cooler on
Saturday across the entire region. Clouds will gradually decrease
throughout the day.

Low temperatures tonight will range from the 40s in the Central
High Plains to the upper 60s in central Oklahoma. Highs Saturday
will be mainly in the 70s.
