Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
504 PM CDT Wed May 17 2017

Wednesday afternoon was very partly to mostly sunny across Kansas,
and very windy in the east. Peak afternoon wind gusts of 50 to 55
mph were observed in southeastern Kansas. Isolated showers and
thunderstorms developed late in the afternoon in northwestern
Kansas. Late afternoon temperatures ranged from the upper 60s in
the far northwest, to around 80 degrees in southern Kansas.

A storm system will continue to eject northeast across the Mid
Missouri Valley into the Upper Mississippi Valley tonight. Severe
weather will affect portions of Iowa and northern Missouri.
Scattered showers and isolated storms will occur in far southwest
Nebraska and northwest Kansas this evening. Low temperatures
tonight will range from the 40s in much of nebraska and northwest
Kansas, to the lower and middle 60s in far southeast Kansas,
southern Missouri and eastern Oklahoma.

The next storm system over the Great Basin will rotate eastward
out over the Central Plains late Thursday afternoon into Thursday
night. Rich Gulf moisture will surge back northward into the
Kansas Region ahead of this storm system. Severe weather is likely
to affect portions of Kansas and Oklahoma late Thursday afternoon
into Thursday night. The higher threat area for severe storms is
expected to be from southwest and south-central Kansas into
western Oklahoma, where a few strong tornadoes, very large hail,
and damaging winds will be possible. Areas of heavier rainfall and
flooding potential will exist from especially central and
northeast Kansas into southeastern Nebraska Thursday night. Highs
Thursday will contrast from the 50s and 60s in much of Nebraska
and northwest Kansas, to the 80s in southern Kansas, Oklahoma and
southern Missouri.
