Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
500 AM CDT Wed Apr 18 2018

A powerful cold front that surged across Kansas during the night
lashed Central Kansas with northwest winds that reached 40 to 50
mph with 55 to 65 mph gusts! Winds weren`t quite as strong across
South-Central Kansas where sustained speeds reached around 40 mph
with gusts around 50 mph. Blowing dust was widespread and reduced
visibilities to around 3 miles at times. The arrival of the front
caused a wide range of temperatures that at 4 AM ranged from near
60 in Southeast Kansas to between 35 and 40 in northern sections.

It`ll obviously be much cooler today as northwest winds sustained
from 25 to 35 mph, with 40 to 45 mph gusts, limit highs to around
50 across northeastern sections while highs across the southwest
should reach around 70.

Large and fairly strong high pressure will plunge from the Dakotas
into Nebraska tonight. This would cause winds to diminish quickly
this evening and with clear skies, lows would plummet into the
lower 30s in all areas.
