Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
458 PM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

During the day today, low pressure and an associated cold front
have been making their way across the central U.S. This frontal
system has produced rain showers with embedded isolated
thunderstorms across the northern and central Plains. High
temperatures have varied greatly across the region as a result,
with portions of eastern Kansas reaching the mid 70s while highs
struggled to reach the mid-40s further west behind the front. Wind
speeds have also picked up considerably behind the front, with
gusts nearing 30 mph in eastern Colorado and the western portions
of Kansas and Nebraska.

Overnight tonight, the front is forecast to continue making its
way east across mid-America. This will push rain into more eastern
portions of the region including eastern Nebraska, central and
eastern Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, and far western
Missouri and Iowa. As temperatures fall behind the front, some
areas of central Nebraska may see some wintry precipitation mixed
in. Overnight lows will be fairly chilly, ranging from the upper
20s in western Nebraska to the mid-50s in western Missouri and

Wednesday looks to be more mild with highs generally in the mid
50s to mid 60s across the region. Chances for rain will linger
across much of the region until late Wednesday.
