Photo: Chelsea Schmitt
Over the next few days and upper-level ridge over Central and Southeastern U.S. and trough in the Pacific Northwest will result in monsoonal moisture to plume out of the southwest and over the Rockies and into the area elevating humidity and dewpoints.   Today will again see 100-degree heat with a Heat Advisory in place along and east Highway 25 where heat index readings could reach 105. With no real disturbances coming over the Rockies diurnal driven late afternoon and evening storms likely remain west and struggle to organize into northwest Kansas.  Tomorrow and Thursday a weak cool front will increase chances some for late day and evening storms and drop highs some. Friday and over the weekend high-pressure returns

Options Press Release

 April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Beginning today, Options Domestic & Sexual Violence Services is opening submissions for a poster contest to go along with an interactive art installation for community members during the Spring Art Walk. The purpose of the contest and the art installation is to bring awareness of sexual assault to Northwest Kansas.
The poster contest will focus on the importance of consent and healthy boundaries. Consent is giving permission or agreeing to do something and being comfortable with that decision. Healthy boundaries are reasonable, safe, and permissible ways for other people to behave around them and how they will respond when someone steps outside those limits.
The interactive art installation will allow participants to express their trauma by drawing, tearing, writing, or painting on a wedding dress or tuxedo during the Spring Art Walk. The finished product of this interactive project will be featured during the Summer Art Walk with the Wonder Women League.
