Cloudy skies began to break across western Kansas during the

Highs ranged from the upper 80s in extreme western Kansas to the
low to mid 70s further east. In addition, a large tornado
producing storm occurred in Wichita and Logan counties this
evening. The one storm did not move much, and led flooding in

Northwest tonight. At the surface, low pressure will strengthen
east of the Rockies. Quiet weather is expected across
southwestern Kansas with some chances for continued precipitation
further north. Storms will be possible again tomorrow with large

eastern Colorado and across Kansas. Highs tomorrow will range from
the mid to upper 70s in central and eastern Kansas to the low to
mid 80s in eastern Colorado and western Kansas.
