A foggy start to the morning in Southwest Kansas with visibilities
as low as 1/4th a mile in Dodge City and Garden City. Lows got
down to the upper 40s in western Kansas and lower 40s near east-
central Kansas. The fog burned off after sunrise, clear skies
appeared and southerly winds picked up to 10-15 mph.
A very weak upper level ridge of high pressure will spread out
over the High Plains region today. At the surface a lee trough
over Colorado will strengthen this afternoon, creating high winds
today and into the evening.
Highs today should reach the middle 80s near the Colorado boarder
and cool down the further east you go. East-central Kansas will be
in the mid 70s today. Southerly winds will increase to 10-20 mph
this afternoon. Lows tonight will be much warmer in Kansas thanks
to the southerly winds with highs in the upper 50s.
