Two consecutive days of record-breaking temperatures might not seem like a big deal....and normally it is not. But in the southwestern Kansas city of Dodge City, those record-breaking temperatures were on opposite ends of the spectrum!
Residents of Dodge City woke up to a winter-like chill Monday morning. The temperature fell to a record low of 23 degrees at 6:22am.
By Tuesday afternoon, the mercury rose to sweltering, summer-like levels usually found during the month of July. A record high of 94 degrees was observed at 3:26pm.
In the span of just 33 hours and 4 minutes, a temperature difference of 71 degrees occurred. Talk about weather whiplash! It wasn't just Dodge City, either. Much of Kansas saw a major jump in temperatures between Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
Looking ahead, near-normal high temperatures in the 50s and 60s will return to the Sunflower State with late-week rain showers. Find your local forecast HERE
