Garden City Telegram – Kansas
Anomalously warm temperatures gave many residents of southwest Kansas an early taste of spring and summer. Temperatures reached 91 degrees in Hugoton, 88 in Cimarron, 87 in Dodge City, 86 in Sublette, 85 in Lakin, 85 in Johnson City, 84 in Ulysses, 81 in Scott City, 81 in Leoti, 79 in Syracuse and 78 in Tribune.
Johnson said Dodge City’s high of 87 degrees, which was registered around 3:30 p.m., marks the second warmest maximum temperature ever reached in Dodge City during February. Dodge City’s previous Feb. 10 record was 80 degrees, which, like Garden City’s previous record, was in 1999.
The National Weather Service has issued red flag warnings for Kansas’ far western counties, meaning weather conditions capable of causing fires are either currently in effect or soon to occur.
