844 PM CDT MON JUL 28 2014
Another round of thunderstorms developed along the Colorado Front
Range this afternoon before moving over the adjacent plains. A few
of these storms reached severe limits. Meanwhile, very little in the
way of active weather was observed across western and central
Kansas. Highs today ranged from the lower 80s in eastern Colorado to
the mid and upper 80s in portions of central and southern Kansas.
An upper level ridge extending from the Rockies into the Southern
Plains will show very little movement through Tuesday. Meanwhile, a
large upper level trough over the Great Lakes and eastern seaboard
will keep the upper Midwest in a northwesterly flow pattern. Surface
high pressure will persist through Tuesday with a weak trough
developing along the lee side of the Rockies. Mostly cloudy
skies are expected overnight with a chance for thunderstorms after
midnight. Thunderstorm chances will increase through midweek with
the main threats being heavy rain from the stronger storms.
Lows tonight will be in the lower to mid 60s from eastern Colorado
to central Kansas. Highs on Tuesday will range from the upper 70s in
eastern Colorado to the mid 80s in central Kansas.
