Meteorologist Mark Larson says Sunday looks spectacular with sunshine and mild temps but there's another wet and stormy stretch of weather ahead next week.
Look for sunny skies and mild temps Sunday with highs around 70 degrees. Southerly winds will gust over 25 mph across western Kansas but they'll be lighter elsewhere.
Back to work and school Monday it'll be windy and warmer statewide with gusty south winds topping 30 to 35 mph sending highs soaring into the 70s and 80s.
A series of storm systems will parade through the Plains starting Tuesday night and by week's end, and into next weekend, we can expect more periods of rain and some strong thunderstorms.
