WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Peyton Sanders says that we will have rain chances over south central Kansas to end the week, then get ready for a much warmer weekend.
Friday morning will start out milder than the past few days with low temperatures in the 40s for most of the state with 30s in northwest Kansas. Afternoon highs will reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
Occasional drizzle will be possible over central and eastern Kansas overnight and into Friday morning.
Heavier showers and a few thunderstorms will develop over south central and southeast Kansas Friday afternoon and evening. Areas southeast of the Turnpike could have rain amounts in excess of one inch. The risk of any severe weather is low.
Sunshine will return for the weekend as temperatures begin to warm up with highs in the upper 60s on Saturday with upper 70s to lower 80s on Sunday.
A stronger system will move into the Plains early next week, bringing chances for severe thunderstorms Tuesday. Check back for updates as we get closer.
