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. -Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
