Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Goodland, KS (KGLD)

Saturday looks like an interesting day for Goodland, KS (near the Colorado border). After clouds or patchy fog today and tonight, the low temperature should be near freezing. But with clearing skies and strong southerly winds mixing down warmer air from aloft, the high temperature could be into the 80's, which would be a record high for the day (currently 79 F). It's also not common to have a 50 F spread between the daily Tmin and Tmax. So let's predict the Tmax and see if they really get to 80 F or above.
