Remnant middle and high clouds from the thunderstorms early this
morning kept skies mostly cloudy across western Kansas today. More
thunderstorm activity developed in northeast Colorado and northwest
Kansas late this afternoon, but the storms in Kansas appear to be
weakening as they move south, while the storms in Colorado are
holding together and moving south, just west of the Kansas line.
High temperatures today reached the mid to upper 80s across eastern
Colorado and western Kansas, with low 90s across the rest of Kansas.
An upper level trough rotating south along the large upper level low
over the Upper Midwest will approach the Central Plains tomorrow
afternoon, while a surface cold front drops south across Kansas by
mid afternoon. This upper level system and surface front will bring
another chance for thunderstorms to southwest Kansas tomorrow
afternoon into tomorrow night. Some of these storms will be capable
of producing gusty winds and brief heavy rains. Temperatures
tomorrow will be near or slightly below normal.
Low temperatures tonight will drop into the low to upper 60s from
eastern Colorado through western Kansas, with upper 60s to low 70s
in central and eastern Kansas. Highs tomorrow will range from the
upper 70s across northern Kansas, to the upper 80s in southern
Kansas and northern Oklahoma.
