Regional Weather Summary for the High Plains
National Weather Service Goodland KS
215 PM MDT Fri Mar 16 2018 /315 PM CDT Fri Mar 16 2018/

Rain showers and snow showers were observed across areas generally
along and west of the Colorado Kansas border shortly after sunrise
on the backside of a potent compact storm system. Northwest winds
gusted over 30 mph where the precipitation was falling. There was
a wide range of temperatures at 8 AM MDT (9 AM CDT) ranging from
32 degrees in Yuma Colorado to 54 degrees in Norton Kansas.
Northwest winds gusting to 60 mph were reported in Leoti county
with many locations reporting gusts in the 45 to 50 mph range. At
2 PM MDT (3 PM CDT) temperatures ranged from 37 degrees in Colby
Kansas and McCook Nebraska to 57 degrees in Tribune Kansas.

OUTLOOK... A few high clouds will drift across the area tonight
with west to northwest winds under 10 mph. Low temperatures fall
into the low to mid 20s. Lots of sunshine on Saturday with high
temperatures returning to above normal levels in the upper 50s to
mid 60s. South winds become breezy to windy by early afternoon
generally along and west of the Colorado Kansas border.

Our focus then shifts to Sunday through Monday as a strong storm
system moves across the Kansas Oklahoma border. Strong to possibly
severe thunderstorms are expected Sunday afternoon before
gradually changing over to a rain snow or all snow mix for some as
colder air moves in. Strong northwest winds are also expected with
the snow possibly creating reduced visibilities in blowing snow.
At this time snowfall accumulations look to range from a trace to
a few inches mainly along and west of the Colorado Kansas border.
Stay tuned as further refinements will be made to the forecast.
