Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
458 PM CDT Tue Jun 27 2017

This afternoon was partly cloudy across the majority of the eastern
half of the Sunflower State. Temperatures in the center of the state
were in the 90s while the eastern third had values in the low to mid
80s thanks to dense cloud cover for most of the day. Winds were out
of the south southeast at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

A low pressure system is on the move towards the Plains. There could
be severe thunderstorms this evening and tonight associated with
this system. The greatest potential will be across Nebraska and
northern Kansas where hail as large as lime size and 70 mph winds
will be possible. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to drop to
around 60 degrees for western Nebraska, eastern Colorado and
northwest Kansas. The rest of the Central Plains will have lows in
the upper 60s to lower 70s tonight. Ahead of the system winds will
stay out of the south at 10 to 20 mph.

Lingering shower and thunderstorm activity is anticipated over far
northeast Kansas, northern Missouri and eastern Nebraska to welcome
the middle of the week. High temperatures are forecast from the
upper 80s to even the upper 90s in the Panhandles. As the low
pressure system moves through the Plains, winds will transition from
the south to the north. Ahead of this system sustained speeds may be
20 to 30 mph with gusts to 35 mph.
