Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
500 PM CDT THU AUG 25 2016

The day started out with numerous showers and thunderstorms with
locally very heavy rain across northeast Kansas. A handful of
locations received over two inches of rainfall. Otherwise, skies
gradually became partly to mostly sunny across the Kansas region
today. A cold front bisected far southeast Kansas, with isolated
to widely scattered thunderstorms in its vicinity by late
afternoon. High temperatures were in the 70s and 80s, with low 90s
over far southeast Kansas.

Pockets of showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in
coverage this evening and overnight across the region, extending
from the Texas Panhandle, northeast across southern and eastern
Kansas, and into Missouri. A few strong to severe thunderstorms
are likely especially this evening, with the primary threat being
very heavy rainfall rates and the potential for localized flash
flooding throughout the night. Forecast low temperatures are in
the 60s and 70s, with cooler 50s over portions of northwest Kansas
and Nebraska.

Areas of showers and thunderstorms will affect the region Friday,
as a frontal boundary lifts back north across Mid-America, in
response to a slow moving weather system approaching from the
west. A few strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, with
the primary threat remaining very heavy rainfall rates and
localized flash flooding. Forecast high temperatures will be
mainly in the 70s and 80s, with a few 90s over Oklahoma.
