REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR EASTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
443 PM CDT SAT AUG 22 2015

AFTER A BOUT OF STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS THIS MORNING ACROSS PORTIONS
OF THE EASTERN HALF OF KANSAS CLEAR SKIES BECAME THE RULE.  WITH
GUSTY SOUTH WINDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH AND GUSTS TO NEAR 35 MPH IN THE
CENTRAL SECTIONS OF THE STATE...THE TEMPERATURES SOARED TO READINGS
NEAR 90 DEGREES.  FURTHER EAST WHERE THE WINDS WERE A BIT MORE WELL
BEHAVED IN A 10 TO 20 MPH RANGE...THE TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE LOWER
AND MIDDLE 80S BY THIS AFTERNOON.

FOR TONIGHT...A COLD FRONT WILL SLIDE SOUTHEAST ACROSS KANSAS AND
MISSOURI.  THIS WILL PRODUCE A CHANCE FOR SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS ALL
OF THE REGION.  LARGE HAIL...HIGH WINDS...AND FLOODING WILL BE THE
MAIN THREATS.  HOWEVER...A TORNADO CANNOT BE RULED OUT.  IF OUT AND
ABOUT THIS EVENING...PLEASE BE PREPARED IN CASE STORMS MOVE INTO
YOUR AREA.  OTHERWISE...A WIDE RANGE OF TEMPERATURES WILL BE NOTICED
AS THE LOWS IN FAR NORTHERN NEBRASKA WILL DROP INTO THE MIDDLE
40S...WHILE LOWER 70S PREVAIL IN PORTIONS OF MISSOURI AND OKLAHOMA.
HERE IN KANSAS...THEY WILL VARY FROM NEAR 50 IN THE NORTHWESTERN
SECTIONS TO NEAR 70 IN THE SOUTHEAST.

ON SUNDAY...MUCH COOLER CANADIAN AIR WILL HAVE INFILTRATED THE STATE
AND KEEP THE TEMPERATURES SIMILAR TO THOSE WE EXPERIENCE IN THE
FALL.  THE HIGHS WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 70S FOR ALL AREAS
EXCEPT FOR OKLAHOMA...WHERE LOWER 80S WILL STILL EXIST.  THE CHANCES
FOR STORMS WILL ALSO SLIDE FURTHER TO THE EAST TOWARDS THE
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.
