SHORT TERM
 
(TODAY AND TONIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 1203 AM CDT THU JUL 29 2021  
 
A QUIET AND HOT WEATHER PATTERN CONTINUES FOR SOUTHWEST KANSAS AND  
THE CENTRAL PLAINS AS A LARGE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER  
NORTHERN KANSAS WILL KEEP THE JET STREAM WELL TO THE NORTH IN THE  
NORTHERN PLAINS. AT THE SURFACE WINDS SHOULD STAY FAIRLY LIGHT OUT  
OF THE SOUTH AT 5-15 MPH AND SKIES WILL BE MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGHS  
TODAY SHOULD REACH TO AROUND 100.  
 
TONIGHT LIGHT WINDS WILL CONTINUE WITH MAINLY CLEAR SKIES AND WITH  
THE WARM AIR MASS IN PLACE TEMPERATURES WILL FALL INTO THE LOWER  
70S.  
   
LONG TERM
 
(FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY)  
ISSUED AT 130 AM CDT THU JUL 29 2021  
 
HOT WEATHER CONTINUES INTO FRIDAY AND THEN WE SHOULD SEE A CHANGE  
IN THE WEATHER PATTERN ON SATURDAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AND  
A COLD FRONT MOVE THROUGH SOUTHWEST KANSAS DURING THE DAY. THE  
QUESTION WILL BE HOW MUCH COMPRESSIONAL HEATING WILL COME ABOUT AS  
THE FRONT COMES IN DURING THE AFTERNOON MAINLY FOR OUR SOUTHEAST  
ZONES. WE COULD CERTAINLY SEE HIGHS REACH IN THE 102-103 RANGE FOR  
AREAS AROUND MEDICINE LODGE AND COLDWATER. A 700 MB SHORTWAVE  
BEHIND THE FRONT COMES IN SATURDAY NIGHT AND COULD GIVE US A GOOD  
CHANCE OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS THROUGH THE NIGHT AS THERE  
IS GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE LONG TERM MODELS AND NBM POPS IN THE  
40-50% RANGE.  
 
EARLY NEXT WEEK THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVES SLIGHTLY EAST BUT NOT  
FAR ENOUGH THAT WE WON'T STILL HAVE SOME OF THE MILDER AIR IT WILL  
BRING AS WE SHOULD SEE HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S. WE WILL ALSO HAVE  
NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT AND WITH EMBEDDED SHORTWAVES AND MOISTURE WE  
COULD BE SEEING POP UP STORM CHANCES PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY NEXT  
WEEK AT THIS POINT.
