Meteorologist Mark Larson says after being blown blown away by wicked Kansas winds and dealing with toasty Tuesday temps, we get a one-day break from gusty winds and hot weather Wednesday.
Early Wednesday, skies mostly clear, winds are fresh and temps range from the 40s northwest to the 70s southeast.
A dry front will slide through our state Wednesday shifting winds around to the north-northeast and ushering in cooler temps. Wednesday highs will range from the mod 70s northwest to the lower 90s for southeastern Kansas and wind speeds should drop to less than 20 mph by afternoon.
Temperatures will soar back into the 90s again Thursday and Friday ahead of a stronger cold front that will slowly bring rain chances and cooler weather to our region.
Look for shower and storm chances to push across our state from west to east this weekend then linger into early next week.
High temps will be much cooler behind our weekend front, falling into the 60s and 70s early next week.
