Showers and thunderstorms dumped some locally heavy rains early
this morning primarily across Ness, Rush, Pawnee, and Stafford
counties with reports around 0.75 to 1.50 inches of rainfall.
There was also another batch of lighter rainfall that occurred in
Kiowa, Comanche, Pratt and Barber county. A weak cold front passed
through towards sunrise and the rain ended leaving much of the
area with clearing skies and north winds around 10-15 mph. Lows
ranged from the upper 40s to mid 50s.
In the upper level a ridge will start to move into the central
Plains from the Rockies and winds aloft will start to turn more
westerly and southwesterly. At the surface a large area of high
pressure in the Rockies should keep the area sunny and
unseasonably warm through the rest of the work week.
Highs today will make it generally into the upper 70s with winds
out of the north at 10-15 mph and sunny skies. Lows tonight will
fall back from the mid to upper 40s as winds turn back to the
southwest and skies remain mostly clear.
