temperatures to drop into the upper 60s for most locations, except
57 in Elkhart and 67 in Dodge City. Wind was from the

Temperatures today will be in the 90s. Areas to the north will
stay in the upper 90s range and areas to the south reaching the
lower 90s. Winds this afternoon will reach 15-30 mph from the
