REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR EASTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
435 AM CDT THU APR 24 2014

LAST NIGHT PROVED THAT EVEN WEAK THUNDERSTORMS CAN PACK A PUNCH AS A FEW
THAT DISSIPATED OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST KANSAS UNLEASHED 60 TO
70 MPH GUSTS. THE GUSTS WHIPPED ACROSS SEDGWICK...SUMNER...COWLEY...AND
GREENWOOD COUNTIES. THE STRONG GUSTS NOT ONLY CAUSED TREE DAMAGE...BUT
KICKED UP A LOT OF DUST. WIDESPREAD RAIN WITH A FEW EMBEDDED
THUNDERSTORMS WERE SPREAD ALONG A COLD FRONT THAT WAS MOVING SOUTHEAST
THROUGH CENTRAL KANSAS BUT WERE NEITHER STRONG NOR SEVERE. SOUTHERLY 15
TO 25 MPH WINDS SHIFTED TO THE NORTHWEST AND NORTH AT SIMILAR SPEEDS AS
THE FRONT MOVED THROUGH. TEMPERATURES HAD RANGED FROM AROUND 70 IN SOUTH
EAST KANSAS TO AROUND 55 IN CENTRAL SECTIONS.

THE SOUTHEAST MOVING COLD FRONT SHOULD EXIT SOUTHEAST KANSAS LATER THIS
AFTERNOON BY WHICH TIME MOST OF THE RAIN AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
HAVE MOVED INTO MISSOURI. SKIES CLEARING IN A WEST TO EAST MANNER SHOULD
OFFSET NORTHWEST 15 TO 25 MPH WINDS TO ENABLE TEMPERATURES TO REACH THE
LOWER 70S IN MOST AREAS.

TONIGHT`LL BE CLEAR AND COOL AS WINDS BECOME LIGHT AND VARIABLE. LOWS IN
THE MID 40S ARE FORECAST AREAWIDE.
