across North and Northeast Kansas.

Western Oklahoma and Southwest Kansas, where winds will shift to
the southwest and greatly increase to 25 to 35 mph. The winds will
send highs into 85 to 90 degree range and cause a critical
rangeland danger. For the rest of the region, winds that are from
the east will shift to the southeast and south at 10 to 15 mph.
Highs elsewhere would range from the lower and mid 80s in Northern
Oklahoma and South-Central Kansas to the mid 60s across Northeast
Kansas and Southern Nebraska.

Tonight, a cold front will surge across Kansas and cause winds to
shift toward the northwest and increase. With speeds reaching 15
to 25 mph, lows across the Western Plains would tumble to around
35 while Eastern Oklahoma, Southeast Kansas and Southern Missouri
would only drop to around 50.
