Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
456 PM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

A windy start to the work week has occurred for the eastern half of
Kansas with southerly winds sustained at 25 to 30mph this afternoon
with gusts to 35 and 40 mph. Afternoon temperatures were higher than
yesterday with values in the 70s for all but the southwest corner
which climbed into the low 80s.

Chances of showers will increase this evening for Nebraska as a low
pressure system moves through the Plains. Winds will diminish to
speeds of 5 to 15 mph; the directional component will be out of the
northeast on the back side of the cold front from Nebraska into
northwest Kansas and out of the south elsewhere. Overnight low
temperatures are forecast to be around 40 degrees in western
Nebraska and northeast Colorado to the mid 40s to mid 50s for the
rest of the Central Plains.

As the system moves through on Tuesday, the chances of showers and
even rumbles of thunder will spread to the rest of the Plains
through the day. The cooler air behind the system will only allow
for high temperatures to rise to the mid 40s to mid 50s for
Nebraska. There is a 30 degree range of temperatures from the
northwest to the southeast portions of the Central Plains. Highs in
the upper 70s to lower 80s are anticipated from the Ozarks to the
southeast half of Kansas. Winds will switch to the north and have
speeds of 10 to 20 mph.
