Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
322 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017


.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Hot airmass will continue to combine with around 60 dewpoints for
persistent 100 degrees or higher heat indices though Saturday for at
least the eastern counties. Temperatures tonight will only fall into
the 70s, with warm upper 70s possible across the central Kansas
counties. Boundary layer mixing will resume mid morning Friday with
max gusts as high as 30 mph. Temperatures again will be as hot or
warmer where the heat advisory remains in place across the eastern
tier of DDC counties.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

By Saturday a cold front will be dropping south into west central
Kansas. Compressional heating/moisture pooling just had of the
front may make a larger area experience higher apparent
temperatures during the afternoon. As a result, a heat advisory
has been extended, in both time and area through Saturday
evening. Additionally, the stalled boundary will bring potential
for thunderstorms and clouds heading into Sunday with a
significant relief to the hot temperatures by Sunday afternoon.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 238 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Potential exists for low level wind shear overnight. Other than
that, given the broad upper ridging, subsidence and mid level dry
air, ceilings will not be an issue during this TAF period.
Surface gusts will ease after dark once boundary layer mixing
ceases before redeveloping again after 15 UTC.
