931 AM CDT TUE OCT 6 2015 /831 AM MDT TUE OCT 6 2015/
Some portions of western Kansas woke up to some low level stratus
clouds, including a few areas of dense fog across northwestern
Kansas. Temperatures at sunrise ranged from the mid 40s across
northwestern Kansas to the mid 50s across the eastern half of
Kansas. Winds were quite light with many areas experiencing no
wind at all early this morning.
A nearly stationary upper low continued to spin across the Desert
Southwest region. The most unsettled weather tied to this storm
will remain across the Four Corners region during the day today. A
weak leeside surface low will remain nearly stationary across far
southeastern Colorado, leading to south to southeast surface winds
of 10 to 15 mph.
Temperatures today will top out in the 70s over all of Kansas,
near the seasonal average for early October. There may even be a
couple of 80 degree readings over portions of southwest Kansas
near the Oklahoma border. Precipitation chances will be on the
increase late tonight into tomorrow as the upper level low begins
to push its way toward the High Plains.
