Climate:
Kansans will quickly tell you that their state's weather is very unpredictable. Winter blizzards, violent windstorms, and heavy rains are common throughout the state, and its climate (on occasion) produces rapid temperature extremes.

Generally here the summers are quite warm, the winters are mild, and the humidity is on the moderate side. Early evening thunderstorms are common in summer, and tornados strike the state on a regular basis as Kansas is in America's Tornado Alley.

January is the coldest month, with average high temperatures near 37 degrees. July is the warmest month, with average high temperatures in the high 80s. Much hotter summers and colder winters (with significant snow) are not uncommon.

Annual precipitation amounts range from 30 to 40 inches in the eastern half of the state, while drier conditions are common in the west.
