REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR EASTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
505 AM CDT WED APR 23 2014

EARLY THIS MORNING SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED
ACROSS NORTHERN KANSAS. THE SHOWERS WERE SPREADING SLOWLY SOUTH TOWARD
SOUTHEAST KANSAS AS THEY VENTURED EAST. UNDER CLOUDY SKIES AND SOUTHEAST
WINDS THAT WERE GENERALLY SUSTAINED BETWEEN 10 AND 20 MPH TEMPERATURES
WERE IN THE MID AND UPPER 50S EXCEPT IN COFFEYVILLE WHERE THEY MANAGED
TO SETTLE INTO THE UPPER 40S.

IT WILL BE WINDY AND MUCH WARMER TODAY AS A SURFACE CYCLONE INTENSIFIES
ALONG THE COLORADO KANSAS BORDER. SOUTH WINDS WHISTLING TO TUNES FROM 30
TO 40 MPH WILL SEND TEMPERATURES SOARING TO BETWEEN 80 AND 85 DEGREES IN
MOST AREAS. WIND ADVISORIES ARE IN EFFECT FROM LATE MORNING UNTIL EARLY
THIS EVENING FOR MOST OF KANSAS AND SOUTH-CENTRAL NEBRASKA...AND WITH AN
EXTREME GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER EXISTING IN CENTRAL KANSAS...THE RED FLAGS
WILL BE FLAPPING THIS AFTERNOON.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL ERUPT OVER THE WESTERN PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON
AS A STRONG SOUTHEAST MOVING COLD FRONT APPROACHES. VERY LARGE HAIL IS
POSSIBLE OVER WESTERN KANSAS...PERHAPS AS LARGE AS BASEBALLS. DAMAGING
WINDS ARE POSSIBLE AND WOULD BECOME THE DOMINANT THREAT FROM LATE THIS
EVENING ONWARD AS THE POWERFUL THUNDERSTORMS SPREAD RAPIDLY EAST ACROSS
THE REST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AS THE COLD FRONT SURGES SOUTHEAST.

WITH FRONTAL PASSAGE...SOUTHERLY 20 TO 30 MPH WINDS WILL QUICKLY SHIFT
TO THE NORTH FROM 20 TO 30 MPH. WITH THE FRONT BISECTING KANSAS...A WIDE
RANGE OF LOW TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST. WHILE THE WESTERN PLAINS SHOULD
PLUNGE INTO THE MID 40S EASTERN KANSAS...OKLAHOMA AND MISSOURI SHOULD
ONLY DROP TO AROUND 60.
