Meteorologist Mark Larson says our spring-fling of warmer than average temperatures will continue through week's end along with stronger winds followed by a chance for Saturday storms.
Wednesday will be warm once again with lots of sunshine and highs ranging from the mid 70s to lower 80s. A fresh south breeze will gust over 20 mph at times later today across eastern Kansas.
Thursday will be breezy dry and warm again with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Wicked southerly winds, gusting over 30 mph at times, are expected Friday and Saturday along with increasing clouds and high temps in the 70s.
A strong cold front will blow into central Kansas late Saturday afternoon sparking showers and a few strong thunderstorms.
The front will push east of our state early Sunday followed by decreasing clouds, a stiff north breeze and much cooler temperatures.
