Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
445 PM CDT Tue Apr 17 2018

A warm front moved north into southern Kansas this afternoon and
boosted temperatures into the low to mid 80s with gusty south
winds at 15 to 25 mph. Temperatures were cooler to the north of
the front, though still rather mild for April, with readings
ranging from the mid 60s to the upper 70s on east to southeast

A vigorous low pressure system will move east across the central
Plains tonight with strong north to northwest winds developing in
its wake across Nebraska, Kansas and northern Oklahoma. Areas of
blowing dust and smoke will reduce visibilities across western
Kansas early tonight. Winds will remain gusty across much of mid-
America on Wednesday. Adverse Winter-like weather is also
expected across northeast Nebraska and much of Iowa late tonight
into Wednesday with snow and freezing rain.

Low temperatures tonight will generally fall into the 30s and 40s,
except for milder lower 50s in eastern Oklahoma, southern Missouri
and northwest Arkansas. Highs on Wednesday will range from the 30s
and lower 40s across Iowa to the lower 70s across central and
western Oklahoma.
