After a mostly clear start to the morning, mid and high clouds
drifted across western Kansas, making skies partly to mostly cloudy.
By late afternoon, a few thunderstorms developed in far western
Kansas, producing some light rainshowers and locally very strong
gusty winds. Gusty southerly winds also prevailed across the western
half of the state, with high temperatures ranging from the low 70s
in eastern Kansas, to around 80 in far western Kansas and eastern

Upper level high pressure ridging will push across the plains states
overnight, ahead of an approaching upper level low pressure system
currently in the Intermountain region of the Rockies. Surface low
pressure troughing to the lee of the Rockies will expand east
tomorrow to near the Colorado and Kansas border, with a cold front
approaching western Kansas by tomorrow evening. This approaching
upper level system and surface cold front will bring strong, gusty
southerly winds, and an increasing chance for rainshowers and
thunderstorms to western Kansas tomorrow afternoon and evening. Some
of these storms tomorrow afternoon and evening may be capable of
producing locally damaging winds and large hail.

Low temperatures tonight will dip into the upper 40s in eastern
Kansas, with low to upper 50s across the rest of the state. Highs
tomorrow will reach the mid to upper 70s in eastern Kansas, while
the rest of the state rises into the low to mid 80s.
