REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR WESTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DODGE CITY KS
1100 AM CST THU MAR 06 2014
Dense fog across much of southwest Kansas made for some slick roads
this morning as temperatures were below freezing, and the fog has
been slow to dissipate. However, temperatures have returned to above
freezing, allowing the ice to melt on the roadways, with
visibilities slowing improving from west to east. Low temperatures
overnight ranged from the upper teens in northeast Kansas, to the
upper 20s in central and southeast Kansas.
Upper level high pressure ridging will dominate the Central Plains
through tomorrow, while surface low pressure troughing to the lee of
the Rockies expands east into western Kansas into tomorrow. The
dense fog this morning will dissipate by mid day, with mostly sunny
skies this afternoon, and temperatures returning to near or slightly
above normal across western Kansas through tomorrow.
High temperatures today will range from the upper 40s in eastern
Kansas, to the mid to upper 60s in far western Kansas. Lows tonight
will be in the low to mid 30s across all but far southwest Kansas,
where lows will only drop into the upper 30s to near 40.
