REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY FOR WESTERN KANSAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DODGE CITY KS
930 PM CDT SAT APR 19 2014

Mid and high clouds kept skies mostly cloudy today, with a few
thunderstorms developing in portions of far western Kansas late this
afternoon. Gusty southerly winds and warm temperatures also
prevailed across western Kansas. Highs only reached the upper 60s to
low 70s in northeast Colorado and northwest Kansas, with upper 70s
to mid 80s across the rest of Kansas.

An upper level low pressure system in the Desert Southwest will move
to near southwest Kansas by morning, while an area of surface low
pressure to the lee of the Rockies moves into western Kansas, as a
cold front drops southeast into northwest Kansas before stalling by
mid day. This upper level system will bring an increasing chance for
rainshowers and thunderstorms across western Kansas by mid day
tomorrow. Rainfall amounts are expected to be half an inch or less,
although some locations may receive significantly more in some of
the heavier thunderstorms. Temperatures will remain near normal
across western Kansas.

Low temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 40s to low 50s
from eastern Colorado through far western Kansas, with mid 50s to
low 60 across the rest of Kansas. Highs tomorrow will reach the
upper 60s to low 70s from eastern Colorado through western Kansas,
with mid to upper 70s in central and eastern Kansas.

1110 AM CDT FRI APR 18 2014

Early morning low clouds and patchy fog dissipated by mid morning,
leaving partly cloudy skies across southwest Kansas. Low
temperatures overnight ranged from the low 30s in eastern Kansas, to
the upper 30s to low 40s in southwest Kansas and southeast Colorado.

An upper level ridge of high pressure across the Great Plains will
shift east tonight into tomorrow, as an upper level low pressure
trough enters the Northern Plains tonight into tomorrow. Surface
high pressure ridging extending from the Great Lakes southwest into
the Southern Plains will gradually move east, as a large area of low
pressure moves from the Northern Rockies into the Northern Plains,
and a trough of low pressure develops to the lee of the Front Range
of the Rockies. Little active weather is expected until tomorrow
afternoon, when an upper level disturbance approaches from the
southwest, and brings a chance for rainshowers and isolated
thunderstorms to southwest Kansas. Temperatures will increase to
above normal through tomorrow.

High temperatures today will be in the low 70s across Kansas, with
mid 70s in eastern Colorado. Lows tonight will drop into the upper
40s to around 50 from eastern Kansas through eastern Colorado.

935 PM CDT THU APR 17 2014

Low clouds, chilly temperatures and light rain were observed across
the high plains through late morning. By late afternoon, the low
canopy of clouds slowly eroded, allowing for some late day sunshine.
Highs today only topped out into the lower to mid 50s from eastern
Colorado into the central half of Kansas. A few isolated locations
did see upper 50s.

An upper level trough which brought rain to the high plains will
drift off into the Mississippi Valley late tonight. In the meantime,
a ridge of high pressure over the central mountains will move into
the central plains early Friday morning. A trough of low pressure
developing on the lee side of the Rockies by Friday morning will
show very little movement through Saturday. Partly cloudy skies are
expected tonight and then sunshine and breezy conditions will return
for the end of the week.

Lows tonight will range from the mid 30s in western Kansas to the
mid 40s in central Oklahoma. Highs on Friday will top out into the
lower and mid 70s across the central plains.
