Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
442 AM CST Mon Dec 4 2017

Southerly winds of 20 to 30 mph, gusting to 40 mph and cloud cover,
kept central and eastern Kansas very mild overnight with
temperatures around 60 to the middle 60s. The northwest part of
the state was cooler with lesser wind and temperatures mostly in
the 30s and 40s.

A cold front extending from eastern Nebraska to northwest Kansas,
will push southeastward across the remainder of the Heartland
today into this evening. The only chances for precipitation, in
the form of showers and thunderstorms, will be mainly this
afternoon and evening, from eastern Oklahoma into southern and
eastern portions of Missouri. Otherwise, the front will mark the
end of the recent warm spell, with colder air filtering gradually
southward from this afternoon into tonight.

Southwesterly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph will
occur ahead of the front this morning through midday over lower
elevations of the Central Plains. Winds will shift to
northwesterly behind the cold front, remaining strong and gusty.
Peak gusts of 40 to 45 mph can be expected in Nebraska, and
northern and western portions of Kansas, from midday into this
afternoon. Breezy northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph will persist
this evening, before tapering off late tonight.

There will be a large high temperature contrast across the region
today. Highs will vary from the 40s and 50s in Nebraska and
northwestern Kansas, to the lower 70s in southeast Kansas and
eastern Oklahoma. Lows tonight will drop back into the upper teens
and 20s.
