Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
450 AM CDT MON OCT 17 2016

Its been a very warm night as south winds from 15 to 25 mph, with
gusts around 30 mph, limited temperatures to the lower 70s under
the glare of a full moon.

Air conditioners will be putting in more overtime today as south
to southwest winds from 20 to 35 mph produce record heat for many
areas. Highs across the Western and Southern Plains will soar into
the 90s with parts of the Southwest hitting 100. The hot and windy
weather will continue to cause an extreme fire danger across the
Western Plains where the Red Flags remain hoisted. The rest of the
neighborhood will still reach the mid and upper 80s.

Tonight, a southeast-moving cold front is still scheduled to push
through Kansas, reaching from Northern Missouri, through Southeast
Kansas, to the Western Red River Tuesday morning. With winds
shifting to the north and northwest from 10 to 20 mph, lows in the
Northwestern Plains will plunge into the lower 40s while southeast
of the front lows across the Eastern and Southern Plains will only
drop to the mid 60s.
