Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
452 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017

Today was a wonderful day in the neighborhood for the state of
Kansas with few clouds in the sky. Afternoon temperatures were in
the 80s except for the northwest corner which had values in the 70s
from cooler air associated with the low pressure system over the
front range of Rockies. Variable winds had speeds of 5 to 10 mph.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this evening for eastern
Colorado, western Nebraska and western Kansas with the eastward
movement of this system. These storms could move across the Kansas
and Nebraska border late tonight. Stay weather aware if you are or
are traveling in those areas. Elsewhere this evening will be a great
way to start off the holiday weekend. Overnight low temperatures
will range from the 50s in the High Plains thanks to the cooler air
associated with the eastward movement of the low, to lower 70s in
eastern Oklahoma and northern Arkansas. Winds are expected to be out
the east at 5 to 10 mph.

Showers and thunderstorms will spread to much of the Central Plains
on Saturday. Strong to severe storms are possible in the afternoon
and evening especially across eastern Kansas into the Ozarks. If you
are headed there or know others staying there this weekend, make
sure that they stay tuned in to the weather and have a plan to seek
shelter. Cooler air behind the low means lower temperatures for
Nebraska, eastern Colorado and northwest Kansas where high
temperatures will top out in the 60s. Further south and east the
temperatures are forecast to reach the mid 70s to mid 80s with even
the lower 90s anticipated in Oklahoma.
