Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
503 PM CDT Wed Apr 19 2017

A warm and windy spring day prevailed across the region today,
with high temperatures reaching the 70s and 80s, about 10 to 15
degrees above normal. As of late afternoon, isolated thunderstorms
were beginning to develop across portions of central and north-
central Kansas, along a cold front approaching from the northwest.

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will move east and
southeast across the region this evening and overnight, as the
cold front continues to progress through the region. Large hail,
damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall with pockets of flooding
are the main threats, although an isolated tornado or two cannot
be ruled out this evening. The greatest severe weather threat will
be before midnight. Temperatures behind the front will drop into
the 40s and 50s, with 60s out ahead of it.

Precipitation chances will gradually exit to the southeast
Thursday, with mostly sunny skies in its wake. High temperatures
will be near normal mostly in the 60s to low 70s.
