Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
519 PM CDT Wed Aug 16 2017

Storms developed during the afternoon along a cold front moving
across the middle of the state. Late afternoon temperatures varied
from near 90 ahead of the front, to the lower 70s in the rain cooled
air near the front, and in the 80s north of the front. Winds were
south at 15 to 25 mph and gusty ahead of the front, and northwest
at 10 to 15 mph north of the front.

The front will continue to move south through tomorrow, extending
from northeast to southwest Arkansas, and then along the Red
River. Storms should exit Kansas tonight, but continue on Thursday
across the southeast half of Oklahoma and Missouri, as well as
most of Arkansas. The potential for heavy rain has prompted flood
watches over southeast Kansas, southwest Missouri, northeast
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.

Forecast lows range from the mid 50s in western Nebraska, to the
mid 70s in southern Arkansas. Forecast highs on Thursday range
from the lower 70s in northern Iowa, to the lower 90s in southern
Oklahoma and southern Arkansas.
