Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
500 PM CDT FRI SEP 23 2016

Above normal temperatures were once again in place across central
and eastern Kansas. Late afternoon temperatures were generally in
the 85 to 90 degree range. Normal highs for this time of year are
near the 80 degree mark. Gusty south winds accompanied these mild
readings today.

A powerful upper level low pressure system is expected to move out
across the Rockies and out into the high Plains tonight into
Saturday. This feature will spread showers and storms across
western Nebraska along with western Kansas. Shower and storm
chances will spread east on Saturday to include eastern Nebraska,
most of Kansas and the western half of Oklahoma. A few strong to
marginally severe storms will be possible Saturday. In addition,
high rainfall rates will be likely with the stronger showers and
storms which may lead to some flooding.

Overnight lows are expected to range from the upper 40s over
western Nebraska to the low 70s over central Kansas down into
Oklahoma. Look for highs on Saturday to range from around 70 over
western Nebraska, to the upper 80s over eastern Oklahoma and
southern Missouri.
