REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR EASTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
500 PM CST SAT FEB 21 2015

MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES GAVE WAY TO INCREASING HIGH AND MID LEVEL CLOUDS
OVER CENTRAL AND EASTERN KANSAS TODAY. ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
WERE IN PLACE THIS AFTERNOON OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF KANSAS WITH
HIGHS RANGING FROM THE UPPER 30S OVER NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS TO THE
MID 50S OVER THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE SUNFLOWER STATE.

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY DIG OVER THE FAR
WESTERN U.S. WHICH WILL ALLOW LOW LEVEL MOISTURE TO CONTINUE TO
FUNNEL INTO THE HIGH PLAINS. THIS WILL PRODUCE SNOWFALL TONIGHT FOR
MOST OF WESTERN KANSAS AND THE OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE WHERE BETWEEN 4
AND 8 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT. SNOW AMOUNTS WILL DECREASE
CONSIDERABLY TO THE EAST WITH LESS THAN AN INCH EXPECTED OVER
CENTRAL KANSAS...SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.
THE PATTERN IS NOT EXPECTED TO CHANGE MUCH FOR SUNDAY WITH
ADDITIONAL SNOW EXPECTED OVER THE WESTERN HALF OF KANSAS ALONG WITH
WESTERN OKLAHOMA. SNOW AMOUNT FOR TOMORROW WILL BE LIGHTER WITH THE
HIGHER AMOUNTS AROUND 3 INCHES.

THE BIGGER STORY OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS WILL LIKELY BE THE
EXTREMELY COLD AIRMASS TO SPILL SOUTH ACROSS THE PLAINS TONIGHT.
LOWS TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM BETWEEN ZERO AND MINUS 5
OVER NORTHERN IOWA...TO THE MID 30S OVER CENTRAL OKLAHOMA. HIGHS ON
SUNDAY WILL ONLY REACH THE TEENS OVER MOST OF NEBRASKA WITH ONLY
SINGLE DIGITS OVER PARTS OF IOWA. MEANWHILE OVER KANSAS AND
OKLAHOMA...HIGHS WILL GENERALLY STAY IN THE 20S
