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  
ARKANSAS.  
 
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.
