National Weather Service Dodge City KS
933 PM CDT FRI JUL 29 2016 /833 PM MDT FRI JUL 29 2016/

Widely scattered light rainshowers and a few thunderstorms
persisted across parts of western Kansas today. The thunderstorms
developed in the vicinity of Richfield, Ulysses and Sublette
during the early afternoon and moved southeast before diminishing
late in the afternoon. A few locations received rainfall amounts
up to a quarter to half inch. High temperatures today were generally
in the 80s but ranged from 79 at Goodland to 91 at Pratt. By this
evening, western Kansas was precipitation free but showers and
thunderstorms were approaching the region from the Nebraska
Panhandle and northeast Colorado.

Upper level high pressure will persist over the Desert Southwest
through Saturday. To the north and east, northwesterly flow aloft
will persist from the northern Rockies into the northern and central
Plains. A weak upper level disturbance in the flow will move out
over the central High Plains overnight. This will bring a chance
for showers and thunderstorms to the area through the overnight
hours into early Saturday morning. Upper level high pressure will
build over the central High Plains later this weekend.

Overnight lows tonight will range from the upper 50s and low 60s
along the Front Range to the lower 70s in central Oklahoma. High
temperatures on Saturday will be in the mid and upper 80s across
Nebraska and northern Kansas...ranging upward to the mid 90s from
southeast Colorado and far southwest Kansas into the Texas
Panhandle and western Oklahoma.
