Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that after a brief cool spell this week, warmer weather is coming back for the weekend. South winds and sunshine will send our temperatures back to near 80 by Saturday.
Overnight, frost is possible across western Kansas where low temperatures will drop into the middle 30s. The winds will die down over the state and skies will be clear.
Sunshine will be abundant Friday afternoon as high temperatures warm back to around 70. South winds will pick up to 10-20 mph.
The warming trend will continue into Saturday with several areas close to 80 by the end of the afternoon. A weak cool front may drift into the area Sunday, but right now, it's unlikely to bring any big changes to our weather.
