WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it is a frigid start to our Friday, but later today we climb above freezing for the first time in nearly two weeks! Wake-up temperatures in the single digits and teens will climb into the 30s this afternoon under a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky.

A weak weather maker, or cold front, will move through the state this weekend. In addition to placing a temporary halt on our warm-up, passing rain showers are possible on Sunday. Some snow may mix in at times, mainly northeast of Wichita, however, accumulation is not expected.

Looking Ahead… a quiet weather pattern next week will allow the warm-up to continue. In fact, highs in the 60s are expected across the state on Tuesday. Cooler conditions will return on Wednesday and Thursday, but nothing like what we witnessed the past two weeks.
