Hutchinson Weather & Climate

Southern Kansas has more sunshine than that of any state to the east, and generous summer rains which, in the eastern counties, average heavier than those of other states, except a few along the Gulf Coast. The State lies across the path of alternate masses of warm moist air moving north from the Gulf of Mexico and currents of cold, comparatively dry, air moving from the polar regions. Therefore, the weather is subject to frequent, severe changes, usually of short duration. Winters are cold but drier than many Eastern states. Summers are hot, with relatively mild humidity and good wind movement, which helps moderate temperatures. Kansas lies within Tornado Alley, with an average of more than 50 tornadoes per year.
