The Regional Weather Summary produced by WFO Dodge City each day
at 1130 AM and 930 PM will be discontinued on 15 November 2016. A
request for customers to identify a need for the Regional Weather
Summary was appended to the product with every issuance from 22
September through 14 October, and no responses were received. The
absence of support for production of the Regional Weather Summary
suggests that it has outlived its usefulness and that resources at
WFO Dodge City would be better allocated to providing weather
information through other avenues. Maps of maximum temperature,
minimum temperature and precipitation are available on the Dodge
City web site at
Technical information about the meteorological environment and
expected future weather can be obtained by reviewing the Area
Forecast Discussion available at This site also
contains links to tables of climatological data and a variety of
other weather messages provided by WFO Dodge City.

Any questions about discontinuation of the Regional Weather
Summary in southwest Kansas can be addressed to Larry Ruthi
( or Jeff Hutton ( at
the National Weather Service in Dodge City. The National Weather
Service also can be reached by telephone at 620-225-6514.
