Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
451 PM CDT SAT JUL 23 2016

Another hot day was noted across eastern Kansas. Afternoon highs
varied from the middle 90s in the far eastern sections while
central Kansas blistered up to the middle 100s. The high
temperatures were only a portion of the problem. The combination
of hot temperatures and moisture produced heat indices, or how it
actually feels, a few degrees warmer than the actual high. The
wind did provide some respite with speeds of 15 to 20 mph and
gusts to near 30 mph in spots.

For tonight, a few thunderstorms will be possible in the far
northwestern sections of Kansas and central Nebraska. Dry
conditions will prevail elsewhere. The low temperatures overnight
will vary from the lower 60s in northwest Nebraska to the middle
70s across much of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. I few lows will
remain in the lower 80s in northeast Oklahoma.

On Sunday, another scorcher is forecast with highs in the 100s
across south central Kansas and Oklahoma. Readings in the 90s
will prevail across the rest of Kansas and Missouri. Temperatures
over Nebraska will be in the 80s. Thunderstorm chances will slip a
bit further south and stretch from near Liberal in southwest
Kansas to north central Missouri.
