REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR WESTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DODGE CITY KS
946 PM CDT FRI JUL 18 2014

Very little in the way of active weather was noted across
southwestern Kansas this afternoon and evening. However, this was
not the case for eastern Colorado and northwestern Kansas as
thunderstorms rumbled across the high plains. The main threat from
these storms continued to be hail through the evening hours. As far
as temperatures are concerned, Garden City tied a record for a
record low maximum temperature of 79 degrees which was last set in
1993. Otherwise, high temperatures ranged from the mid 80s in
eastern Colorado to the upper 60s in south central Kansas.

As an upper level trough over the Ohio Valley continues to migrate
east tonight, weak northwesterly flow will be evident across the
Northern and Central Plains through Saturday afternoon. A surface
trough developing along the lee side of the Rockies will persist
through Sunday morning. Thunderstorms over extreme western Kansas
are expected to weaken through midnight as they move south. Mostly
sunny skies are forecast to return on Saturday along with warmer
temperatures.

Lows tonight will be in the lower to mid 60s across the Central
Plains. Highs on Saturday will range from the mid 90s in
northeastern Colorado to the mid 80s in central Oklahoma.
