WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a cold front will move into the area Friday night, bringing a chance for rain and storms by early Saturday. Temperatures are expected to drop over the weekend.

Skies will remain clear into Thursday morning with lows in the 60s to near 70. The humidity goes up on Thursday, especially over central and eastern Kansas with temperatures into the mid 90s once again. The leftover moisture from Laura will track to far southeast to bring any rain to Kansas.

Look for an even hotter day on Friday with sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 90s. Storm chances won’t begin until after midnight Friday night/Saturday morning and severe weather is not expected. Rain chances end for the afternoon, but they will return on Sunday and Sunday night for much of Kansas.

Much cooler weather is still expected early next week.
