Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
447 PM CST Mon Feb 19 2018

Mostly cloudy skies were found across the plains states today, as a
strong cold front pushed southeast across most of Kansas into
Oklahoma.  Just to the east-southeast of the front, showers and even
a few thunderstorms were located over eastern Oklahoma, southwest
Missouri and southeast Kansas.  Afternoon temperatures varied
greatly across the plains, with temperatures ranging from the teens
in Nebraska to the lower 70s in Oklahoma.

The frontal boundary is expected to stall over northern OKlahoma and
southern Kansas tonight, as a disturbance in the southern plains
lifts northeast along the front. This will lead to showers and
thunderstorms increasing across eastern Oklahoma and southwest
Missouri, with a chance of freezing drizzle and freezing rain for
portions of central Kansas, as moisture overruns the shallow cold
air. Low temperatures tonight will range from the single digits in
northwest Kansas to the lower 60s in southwest Missouri.

The frontal boundary will linger over southeast Kansas on Tuesday,
as a Canadian ridge of high pressure builds into the northern
plains. A mix of showers and thunderstorms will continue across
southeast Kansas, with a chance of freezing rain or freezing drizzle
over the top of the boundary for portions of central and northeast
Kansas. High temperatures on Tuesday will range from the lower 20s
in northwest Kansas, to the middle 60s in southeast Kansas, eastern
Oklahoma and southwest Missouri.
