We are tracking a cold front moving across Kansas this mid-morning. The front is currently stretches from Kansas City southwest along the Kansas Turnpike to Wichita and extends southwest into the OK/TX panhandles.
All is quiet now, however strong to severe storms may develop along the front this afternoon across SE KS (mainly east of the KS Turnpike) into Missouri. Isolated showers and thundershowers may develop behind the front and bring a chance of rain to mainly central and southern sections of the state through early evening. While most rainfall amounts will be less than 0.25 inches some storms could produce locally heavier amounts. The "big story" will not be the rain, but rather the much cooler temperatures behind the front. At 11 am Goodland was 64, while Wichita was 96 degrees! Highs will range from the low 80s in northwest Kansas to near 106 in southeast sections of the state.
