Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
921 PM CDT Mon Oct 17 2016 /821 PM MDT Mon Oct 17 2016/
Another record-breaking hot and dry day in Southwest Kansas today.
Record temperatures were set in Dodge City with 101 degrees and
Garden City with 100 degrees. This was the first time October
temperatures in both locations reached 100 degrees or above in 142
years of record keeping.
Tonight, strong upper level westerly flow continues over the
southwest Kansas region. What we care about is happening at the
surface - a cold front has passed through the region and is now
into central Kansas. While it won`t bring any precipitation due to
lack of moisture, it will bring needed relief from the hot
temperatures for tomorrow.
Lows tonight will be in the upper 40s in the north and in the
lower 40s to the south. Wind will be from the north at 10-20 mph
and then calming down throughout the night. Highs tomorrow will
be in the 70s and north/northeast wind at 5-10 mph.
This product will not be produced after 0930 PM 15 November. Any
