Wild swings in temperatures

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that our temperatures will go up Thursday, only to come right back down again for Friday and the weekend.

Skies will remain mostly clear during the night with lows slipping back into the 20s. We should have another sunny day on Thursday, but the wind picks up from the south. Some gusts will approach 25-30 mph in central and eastern Kansas. You can expect highs to climb above 60 in the west, with upper 50s farther east.

A strong cold front is coming in Friday, which will send temperatures down during the afternoon. Clouds will be increasing too, but there's no chance for any light snow until Saturday. Any icy weather will setup east of the Flint Hills Saturday, with some slick travel possible in northeast Oklahoma too. Some light snow is expected around the state heading into Saturday night.
