Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
448 PM CST Sat Dec 10 2016

Partly sunny skies and breezy conditions dominated the State of
Kansas today. This brisk wind ranged from 5 to 10 mph in the
Northwest portions of the state to 17 to 25 mph with higher gusts in
the South and Southeast portions of the State.  In addition, this
strong Southerly wind allowed from some decent warm air advection to
occur which helped to bring up temperatures. Afternoon highs
ranged from the mid 30s in the Northwest part of the State to the
near 60 in the Southwest parts of the State. The rest of Kansas
stayed in the low 40s.

Tonight, will be partly cloudy and breezy.  Winds will remain out
the South ranging from 15 to 20 mph in the South Central and
Southeast parts of Kansas to 5 to 10 mph in the Northern portions of
the Kansas.  This combination of clouds and wind will keep the
overnight lows from getting too cold in the Southern portions of
Kansas. Overnight lows here will range from the mid 30s to near 40.
In the Northwest portions of Kansas, the lighter winds and clear
skies will promote a much colder night with overnight lows in the
mid to low 20s.

Sunday, partly sunny skies will again reign but the winds will
slowly shift to the Northwest as a frontal system comes through the
region.  This front will keep temperatures rather warm in the
Southeast portions of Kansas Sunday with highs near 50.  High
temperatures will be cooler further North and West as the front will
come thorough earlier in the day.  Central Kansas will likely have
highs in the mid 40s while Western and especially Northwestern
Kansas will see highs in the mid to upper 30s.  As this front comes
through, there will be some light drizzle or light rain possible.
Otherwise, little precipitation is expected.
