Regional Weather Summary for Western Kansas
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
1029 AM CDT Fri Oct 28 2016 /929 AM MDT Fri Oct 28 2016/
High clouds moved into the region this morning and winds stayed
out of the south through the night at 10-15 mph leading to mild
morning lows ranging from the low to the mid 50s.
An upper level ridge continues to keep the weather conditions
quiet through the central and southern plains. At the surface a
broken trough of low pressure along the Kansas-Colorado border
will help to strengthen south winds in the order of 20-30 this
afternoon. A fire danger risk is all across the area and areas
along and south of a line from Garden City to Dodge City have an
elevated fire risk. Possible record highs could still happen today
but will be dependent on how much cloud cover sticks around
through the afternoon.
Highs this afternoon look to make it into the low to mid 80s with
south to southwest winds 20-30. Skies will be partly to at times
mostly cloudy with higher level clouds. Lows tonight fall back
into the low to mid 50s with south winds 10-15.
