Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
420 PM CDT Sat May 27 2017

Thunderstorms have developed this afternoon which have been severe
with hail as large as golf balls and winds to 70 mph in the eastern
half of Kansas. Temperatures climbed to the mid 70s to mid 80s.
Northerly winds have had speeds of 5 to 10 mph.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are anticipated into the evening
hours as the low pressure system moves through the Plains. There
could be hail as large as baseballs, 70 mph winds and possibly even
tornadoes for southern Missouri, eastern Oklahoma and extreme
southeast Kansas. Please stay tuned and heed any issued warnings. As
the upper level system pushes through, there are showers and
thunderstorm chances for eastern Colorado and far western Kansas.
This activity will not be severe. Otherwise the Plains will have a
fairly pleasant evening. Low temperatures are anticipated to drop to
the low to mid 40s for western Nebraska and eastern Colorado. Much
of the rest of the Central Plains will range in the 50s. A few
places may only fall to the lower 60s in Oklahoma and far southern

Sunday will be nice as the system will have exited the Plains. High
temperatures in the 70s are anticipated and relatively clear skies
are going to be overhead. Winds will be out of the north at 10 to 20
mph with gusts to 25 mph.
