Mild weekend, much cooler next week
Highs in the 60s Saturday and 70s Sunday
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Peyton Sanders says that temperatures will be mild over the weekend before a much cooler weather pattern develops next week.
Breezy winds will continue overnight as rain showers move into far eastern Kansas. A few showers may redevelop around Salina early Saturday, but any rain will not stick around very long.
Northwest winds will remain breezy on Saturday with gusts up to 25 mph at times over central and eastern Kansas. High temperatures will reach the mid to upper 60s during the afternoon.
Sunday will be warmer for most of the state with high temperatures in the 70s with plenty of sunshine. Winds will turn gusty out of the north over northwest Kansas as another cold front arrives.
This front will bring a return to cooler weather for much of next week with highs only in the 50s and 60s. Rain chances could return by the middle and end of next week.
