Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
456 AM CST Tue Feb 28 2017

Cloud cover blanketed much of the region overnight, with patchy
dense fog over south-central Kansas early this morning. Early
morning temperatures were in the upper 20s and 30s in the
northwest, and the 50s and lower 60s in eastern Kansas.

A cold front will stall today from Iowa to central and
southwestern portions of Kansas. To the south of the front, strong
and gusty south-southwesterly winds will allow for much warmer
than normal temperatures, with afternoon highs in the middle 70s
to around 80 degrees, and extreme grassland fire danger levels.
Behind the front, highs will be mainly in the 40s and 50s with a
few rain showers possible this afternoon. Isolated strong to
severe storms will be possible this afternoon from eastern
Oklahoma to southern Missouri.

The cold front will surge southward through the remainder of the
Kansas region tonight. This will spark severe thunderstorms from
central and southern portions of Missouri to eastern Oklahoma and
Arkansas. Meanwhile, there is a chance of rain mixing with, or
changing to snow, before ending behind the front, from northern
Kansas and southeast Nebraska to Iowa. Little if any snowfall
accumulation is expected however. Gusty northwesterly winds behind
the cold front passage, will allow temperatures to fall into the
20s and 30s by daybreak Wednesday.
