Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
505 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

Its been a cloudy, balmy and breezy night as southeasterly 10 to 20
mph winds caused temperatures to stabilize then slowly rise in most
areas. In a few areas temperatures rose 5 degrees between mid-night
and 4 AM, by which time the mercury had risen into the 50s.

It will be very windy and warm today as a cyclone intensifies along
the Front Range. South winds from 25 to 35 mph, with 45 to 50 mph
gusts, will send temperatures soaring to 75 to 80 degrees in nearly
all areas. These would no doubt cause major grassland fire dangers.

As the vicious cyclone ventures east to the Colorado Kansas Border,
thunderstorms will erupt across the Western Plains, where several
will be severe. The thunderstorms will spread east across most of
Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma late tonight. Stiff southerly winds
from 20 to 30 mph will produce another balmy night in most areas.
Lows from 55 to 60 are forecast for most areas with the exceptions
being the Western Plains where lows would drop into the 40s.
