REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE HIGH PLAINS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GOODLAND KS
104 PM MDT THU APR 17 2014

FOG AND LOW STRATUS OVER A LARGE PORTION OF THE REGION HAS BEGUN TO
LIFT IN SOME AREAS LEAVING MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. LOW STRATUS
REMAINS OVER PORTIONS OF EASTERN COLORADO...SOUTHWEST NEBRASKA...
AND NORTHWEST KANSAS COUNTIES ALONG THE COLORADO BORDER BUT WILL
BEGIN TO DISSIPATE THIS AFTERNOON. WINDS OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE
TRI STATE REGION WERE LIGHT AND VARIABLE WHILE WINDS OVER THE WESTERN
HALF WERE OUT OF THE SOUTH AT 15 TO 20 MPH GUSTING TO 25 MPH.
TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S ACROSS THE REGION.

OUTLOOK... LOW STRATUS WILL SLOWLY DISSIPATE AS THE AFTERNOON GOES
ON REVEALING MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. A SURFACE HIGH SITTING OVER THE
CENTRAL PLAINS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE EAST WHILE AN UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE PLAINS KEEPING THE AREA DRY
INTO THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEKEND. SOUTHERLY WINDS AT 15 TO 20 MPH
WILL OCCUR OVER THE ENTIRE REGION BY TONIGHT...BRINGING IN MUCH
WARMER AIR FOR FRIDAY WITH HIGHS REACHING THE MID TO UPPER 70S. AN
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE THROUGH THE
SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES BRINGING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE HIGH
PLAINS ON SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT WILL BE IN
THE MID TO UPPER 80S OVER EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE REGION WHILE
TEMPERATURES BEHIND THE FRONT WILL ONLY CLIMB INTO THE UPPER 60S
OVER NORTHWEST PORTIONS OF THE REGION. THERE WILL ALSO BE THE CHANCE
FOR THUNDERSTORMS SATURDAY AFTERNOON...WITH THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING SMALL HAIL AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL. THE CHANCE FOR
THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 60S
TO MID 70S.

THE WAY THINGS ARE LOOKING...TODAY WILL LIKELY BE THE COOLEST DAY
SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS WILL SEE FOR THE
FORESEEABLE FUTURE...AS THE MAJORITY OF THE NEXT WEEK SHOULD FEATURE
PREVAILING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. ALTHOUGH IT WILL REMAIN DRY
TODAY...THINGS WILL START OUT QUITE CLOUDY BEFORE A RETURN TO MORE
SUNSHINE AS THE DAY WEARS ON. SUSTAINED BREEZES THROUGH MOST OF THE
DAY WILL AVERAGE AROUND 10 MPH...AS THE DIRECTION GRADUALLY SWITCHES
FROM NORTHERLY TO SOUTHEASTERLY. HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON
ARE ONLY FORECAST TO CLIMB SOMEWHERE IN THE 50S ACROSS THE LOCAL
AREA. TURNING TO FRIDAY...A MUCH WARMER DAY IS EXPECTED...BUT IT
WILL COME WITH THE PRICE OF FAIRLY STRONG WINDS. SUSTAINED SOUTH
WINDS ON FRIDAY WILL AVERAGE AROUND 25 MPH...WITH GUSTS TO AROUND 35
MPH FOR MOST OF THE DAY...BUT THESE WINDS WILL HELP BOOST HIGH
TEMPERATURES BACK UP INTO THE 70 TO 75 DEGREE RANGE. LOOKING AHEAD
TO THIS WEEKEND...THE MAIN STORY IS THAT THERE WILL BE INCREASING
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MUCH OF THE LOCAL
AREA...ESPECIALLY FROM LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY
NIGHT...BUT POSSIBLY LINGERING INTO EASTER SUNDAY AS WELL. SOME
THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING COULD BE ON THE
STRONG SIDE...CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SOME HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS. IT IS
A BIT TOO SOON TO REALLY PINPOINT RAIN CHANCES FOR SUNDAY...BUT EVEN
IF IT DOES RAIN DURING THE DAY...IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY LOOK LIKE
AN EASTER WASHOUT. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY ARE FORECAST TO
CLIMB INTO THE 70S IN MOST AREAS...WITH UPPER 60S MORE PREVALENT FOR
SUNDAY.
