Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that warmer than normal weather will stick around through the weekend. It should be perfect for many outdoor activities.
Skies will be clear in the overnight hours with lows in the 40s. The winds will be light out of the south.
Saturday looks rather warm as high temperatures get back into the 80s across western Kansas. Farther east, highs will be in the upper 70s with a south breeze that could gust as high as 30 mph.
A weak cold front will arrive into Sunday, but it doesn't change things much. Highs will still be in the 70s with sunny skies and light north to northeast winds.
The next chance for rain doesn't arrive until next Tuesday with another cold front. Best chances will come in the evening hours over central and eastern Kansas. The rain will be long gone by early Wednesday.
