919 PM CDT SAT AUG 29 2015 /819 PM MDT SAT AUG 29 2015/

Skies appeared hazy across western Kansas today as smoke from the

Northern and Central Plains. Mostly cloudy skies persisted across
the eastern half of Kansas, keeping temperatures there below
normal. High temperatures today only reached the upper 70s to low
80s in eastern and central Kansas, with upper 80s to low 90s
across western Kansas and eastern Colorado.

Upper level high pressure ridging over the plains states will
persist through tomorrow, while a broad area of surface low
pressure moves from eastern Colorado into western and central Kansas.
With light winds aloft, the hazy conditions from the forest fire
smoke will likely persist over western Kansas at least through
tomorrow.

Low temperatures overnight will only dip into the upper 50s to low
60s across Kansas. Highs tomorrow will reach the mid to upper 80s
in the eastern half of Kansas with low 90s in western Kansas and
eastern Colorado.
