Water vapor image of the ridge of high pressure centered over the central US Wednesday morning.

 

   Last weekend, a large high pressure area settled over the Central High Plains.  The associated airmass was unusually warm and dry, resulting in high temperature records being tied or broken across the region since last Saturday. The table below shows the high temperatures reached each day at the official stations in the area.  The portions of the table shaded in yellow indicate daily records, those in orange show monthly records and a cell in red indicates an all-time record.
