Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
918 PM CDT TUE APR 26 2016 /818 PM MDT TUE APR 26 2016/

A cold front moved east across the area this afternoon, which
became the impetus for numerous severe storms from northwest
Oklahoma through central Kansas. A wide range of temperatures
resulted from the frontal location, as Medicine Lodge and Hill
City reached 86 and 80 degrees. Farther west, locations along the
Colorado line only saw highs in the low 70s. By early evening,
elevated decaying thunderstorms and showers invaded the far
southwest counties, resulting in a broad area of strong outflow
with gusts to around 50 mph through the Ark river valley.

Additional showers and thunderstorms may linger along the warm
front through west central Kansas through the early overnight
hours. Wednesday afternoon is forecast to be cooler with highs in
the 60s and typically breezy northwest winds.
