Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
349 PM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

Tuesday afternoon was windy and hot across Kansas. Late afternoon
temperatures ranged from the upper 80s in the southeast, to around
100 degrees at Hill City. The humidity combined with the much
above normal temperatures, resulting in afternoon heat indices
near 100 degrees in parts of central and eastern Kansas. Southerly
winds of 20 to 35 mph, with some gusts of 40 to 45 mph were common
for most of the state, but lesser in the far northwest and far
southeast.

A cold front will push southward through Nebraska and western
Kansas tonight, before stalling by Wednesday afternoon, from
northern Missouri to south-central Kansas, into northwestern
Oklahoma. Warm and breezy conditions will persist tonight ahead of
the front, with cooler and drier air spilling into Nebraska and
northwest Kansas behind the front. Overnight lows are forecast to
range from the lower to middle 70s ahead of the front, to the
upper 40s and 50s behind the front.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms may develop southwestward
along the cold front Wednesday afternoon and evening, from
Missouri to eastern Kansas, and northwestern Oklahoma. Highs
Wednesday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s behind the front
in Nebraska and northwestern Kansas, and in the upper 80s to
middle 90s from southeastern Kansas into southern Missouri, and
much of Oklahoma.
