More clouds and cool temperatures Thursday
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says our weather maker is on the way out and warmer weather is on the way in. However, the higher temperatures will not arrive until tomorrow and rain/drizzle is still falling on eastern Kansas. All areas will be dry by late morning, but clouds will keep temperatures in the 50s this afternoon.
A strong and gusty south breeze will help temperatures soar into the lower 70s on Friday afternoon. The weekend will be a bit cooler, but highs in the middle to upper 60s are above normal.
A sneaky storm system may produce a few storms on Friday afternoon and evening, mainly across north-central and northeast Kansas. While the activity will be isolated in nature, some of the storms may be on the strong side producing small hail and gusty wind.
