Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
837 PM CDT FRI SEP 23 2016 /737 PM MDT FRI SEP 23 2016/
Warm and windy conditions continued to dominate the region today
as highs made it into the upper 80s to low 90s. Winds were gusting
out of the south sustained 20-30 mph with gusts to near 40.
A slow moving upper level low located in southwest Wyoming will
continue to move to the northeast through the night. An upper
level wave circulating around the low will trigger spotty showers
and storms primarily along the Colorado and Kansas border. The
severe chances have diminished but there could still be an
isolated stronger storm with gusty winds. Tomorrow could bring
more scattered storms into the area by mid to late morning as
another upper level wave travels through western Kansas. The
better chances of rain look to be through central and eastern
Kansas with the possibility of heavier rains. Cooler air moves as
we go through the weekend.
Lows tonight will range from the mid 50s to mid 60s with the
cooler temperatures closer to the Colorado border. Highs tomorrow
will range from the upper 70s in the far west to the mid 80s from
Dodge City on east.
