Summer to fall - a split weekend ahead
Record warmth will give way to much cooler weather Sunday
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that much cooler weather is on the way to Kansas after what looks to be another record setting day Saturday with temperatures well above normal.
Saturday will start out with temperatures in the 60s for most of the state and then warm well into the 90s during the afternoon. It could be hot enough for record highs in many areas. Gusty winds from the south will be quite common over central and south central Kansas.
A cold front will push into the area Saturday night and have our temperatures down nearly 25 degrees come Sunday. Expect a north to northeast wind to finish off the weekend. Chances for rain are not promising at all, but some parts of southcentral and southeast Kansas may see some showers and storms.
Next week looks cooler and mainly dry with highs below normal.
