REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR WESTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DODGE CITY KS
930 PM CDT MON APR 14 2014
Weather conditions around the plains seem more like February as
several inches of snow fell across the High Plains earlier this
morning. By this afternoon, the snow across most locations was just
a memory except for portions of eastern Colorado. Chilly
temperatures and gusty north winds were observed most of the day.
Highs today ranged from the upper 30s in eastern Colorado to the
lower 50s in south central Kansas.
As an upper level storm system moves into the Mississippi Valley
later tonight, northwesterly flow can be expected over the Central
Plains. As the chilly surface high pressure system moves to the
southeast tonight, troughing will develop on the lee side of the
Rockies by Tuesday morning. Clear skies and cold temperatures are
expected tonight. Much warmer temperatures and sunny skies are
forecast for Tuesday.
Lows tonight will drop into the lower 20s across eastern Colorado
and western Kansas. Highs on Tuesday will climb into the mid 60s
across the Central Plains.
