Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
455 PM CST Thu Nov 23 2017

It was a mostly sunny Thanksgiving across Kansas today with
unusually warm temperatures. Highs tied the record in a couple of
locations, while a few others came close. Temperatures topped out
in the upper 60s and low 70s across much of the state, while the
far eastern regions of Kansas were slightly cooler as temperatures
reached the low to mid 60s. Wind direction varied from southwest
to northwest throughout the day, but remained relatively light at
speeds ranging from 5 to 12mph.

Tonight, lows are expected to drop down into the low to mid 40s
across mid-America. No significant weather is expected across the
region tonight as skies are forecast to remain mostly clear to
partly cloudy. Southerly winds with speeds between 5 to 15 mph
will dominate the flow regime.

Ahead of an approaching cold front from the Pacific Northwest,
downslope southwesterly winds and a strong low-level ridge moving
in from the south will be conducive to near record or record
setting temperatures on Friday. Highs will reach the mid to upper
70s across much of Kansas, Oklahoma, and eastern Colorado. The
region will remain dry with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Winds will increase and switch to northerly behind the front`s
passage late Friday, which should cool temperatures back down for
Friday night into Saturday.
