Wind gusts up to 60 mph were reported across southwest Kansas on Wednesday

A tight pressure gradient developed during the day on Wednesday across southwest Kansas as pressures fell along a trough of low pressure which was located over the western high plains. At the same time very strong winds were located in the mid levels of the atmosphere. The combination of the tight pressure gradient located at the surface and downward mixing of these winds aloft resulted in strong to damaging winds over much of southwestern Kansas this afternoon into the early evening.

Listed below is a preliminary summary of some wind gusts reported in southwest Kansas on Wednesday June 06th.
