459 PM CST Thu Dec 7 2017

While the skies were filled with sun, a cool down could be felt
across Kansas this afternoon with temperatures climbing only to
around the freezing mark. The far western portion of the state had
temperatures slightly higher with values in the upper 30s. Northwest
winds had speeds of 5 to 10 mph.

There is a chance of flurries or a snow shower in eastern Colorado,
the northwest corner of Kansas and Nebraska this evening and
tonight. Cloud cover will limit temperatures from dropping in the
High Plains with expected lows in the mid 20s which is a sharp
contrast from the single digits and lower teens this morning. Areas
further east are anticipated to drop to the mid teens to 20 degrees.
Winds will be out of the southwest to northwest at 5 to 15 mph.

The end of this work week is going to be better than today in terms
of temperatures with a range of values across the Central Plains.
Lower values around 40 degrees are forecast from eastern Nebraska to
Missouri. Then there is the rest of the area which will have highs
in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Gusty winds are going to be in full
force from western Nebraska into eastern Colorado, western Kansas
and into the Panhandles. Sustained speeds will be at 30 to near 40
mph with gusts of 50 to 60 mph.
